Senzo Boning AUS-10 165mm (6.5")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
The knives from Suncraft's AUS-10 series are designed for chefs (home & professional) who are looking for the best of both worlds. They have everything you want from a classic Western knife that is a little on the heavy side but easy to maintain and that feels great in your hand when you hold it by its standard bolstered and riveted handle. You also get all the characteristics of a durable blade made from high-quality Japanese steel with a thin profile and minimalist design.
Boning knife is, as its name suggests, used for separating bones from meat, deboning poultry and filleting fish. The handle and shape of the blade allow for various cutting techniques, especially for removing the meat around joints and bones.
The blade is ground on both sides (at a ratio of 50/50) and can be used by right- and left-handed users. It is made in the san mai (three layers) technique, which means that its core is made from AUS-10 steel (hardened to 59-60 HRC) and protected by two layers of softer and pliable steel that act as a protective jacket on both sides of the core and also prevent corrosion. The knife is very easy to maintain and sharpen on whetstones.
→ The AUS-10 steel is rust-resistant, easy to sharpen and very durable. It performs well, retains its edge and also holds a sharp edge.
The blade has a high polish finish (also called migaki) and features a beautiful wavy line, marking a point where different layers of steel meet and seamlessly blend into each other. The upper part of the blade bears a subtle signature of the smithy in kanji characters which translate to “Senzo”, the name of the line of these knives.
The minimalist design of the blade is nicely contrasted by the pakka wood handle in mahogany color. The pakka wood is extremely durable and wear-resistant and lends itself to a solid and comfortable grip. Suncraft made sure that this knife, while it retains a classic Western look, also packs an additional visual punch by adding three rivets and a stainless-steel bolster to create a smooth and comfortable transition between the blade and the handle.

Still doubting which type of Japanese knife should best fit your needs? We created a quick, 5-steps quiz to help you find the perfect knife based on your cooking skills and the type of food you prepare.
Yesterday I cooked a Chinese meal for a couple of friends: a main mie dish and verious side dishes. Preparing all the vegetables and meat with this Santoku was a joy: effiortless and precise cutting. Probably this inspired me to be as precise in the cooking itself, because we all agreed that it was the best version of this recipe I ever made.
This is the second knife I purchased from SharpEdges. The first one - a Yoshida kiritsuke 135 mm black HAP-40 is also very good. I like the (almost) minimalistic simple but (almost) perfect finish of these Yoshida blades and handle.
All in all I regret that I did not discover your shop earlier. I already have a nice collection of other Japanese knives with different steels and shapes. No need on the short term for replacements or filling some gap. But who knows?
Delivery by DHL Express from Ljubljana to the Netherlands is okay but not perfect. Oh well. Who cares?
Thanks guys for the good service, the European sense of humour and the - especially that - great products.
Well received and everything in great condition, great knife bag and the blade covers fits perfectly... Thanks
Ciao, ho acquistato questo coltello per tagliare la pasta che faccio in casa. Premetto che sono mancino per cui gran parte dei coltelli giapponesi faccio fatica a trovarli. Il coltello è piacevole ma non propriamente da mancini. Un saluto
Very special handle,nice!
I just received my Yoshida Hamono ZDP189 santoku and I am over the moon with it. It was a hefty purchase, but well worth it. I’m currently restoring my knife collection since my previous one was stolen. This is a wonderful addition to my new collection.
Nice wrapped and really safe, amazing knife as a Santoku I had bought and really comfortable to use for whole day prep in the professional kitchen.
I purchased a knife from this website, unfortunately the knife was not of my liking, they provided a return label for me, then Fedex lost the package and it was a mess, lots of calls and emails but sharpedgeshop was always professional and gave me a full refund, they always responded to my emails quick and were very professional.
During the Purchasing process and a year later when I wanted to have something repaired, the service has been outstanding. Prompt responses and working with me to find the right solution.
Beautiful blade and handle. Thanks Sharp Edge!
Will be buying from here again due to the fact that the customer service made me feel like no matter what I'd have everything I needed and be getting my money's worth. They care about your experience and also have brilliant products
Knife was bought as a gift and the receiver loves it. They were responsive when emailed a question and the knife arrived fairly quickly.
It was a pleasure to shop here, so much information and good advice to help you find what you are looking for, pair that with exceptional service and communication and you have a shop who is dedicated and passionate about what they do. Highly rated and thank you
I ordered a knife for a friend with custom engraving and the customer support went above and beyond to help make sure I received the product I asked for. They were quick, friendly, and considerate, and shipped the knife extremely quickly. When a part of the Saya was damaged during delivery I received a replacement (several just in case) the next day!
The knife itself looks great, is nice and sharp, and is exactly what I had hoped to order. Will definitely order again for myself.
I'm really satisfied with the quality of the knife. A great product. And the customer service was great. I have a very small thing to share and it’s not a complaint at all. The knife was a gift and overall the packing is okay. But the knife box was a little bit low quality and i hope that would be okay with lots of customers and if there is an option to buy a little bit higher quality box, it would be very nice. Thank you.
Prompt and reliable team at “Sharp Edge”. I received my item promptly and was well packaged. I had a query about the handle before I purchased this knife. The team at Sharp Edge actually went to the trouble of doing a test and gave me an answer in four days.(I asked them about the suitability of composite handles for sanitising in hot water). All Is good!
