Tojiro DP Garasuki is a Japanese boning knife. Garasuki has a special, triangular shaped stiff blade, designed for deboning poultry and cutting through soft joints. In restaurants, it is mostly used to break down whole chickens, while at home it can also serve as a heavier petty knife, due to the similar shape and length.
The "reverse tanto" tip design increases the strength of the tip, which can be used to easily pierce the skin, as well as to make precise cuts in tight spots, like the joints. Its shape also allows making quick turns, great for trimming away fat and connective tissue. Garasuki is a must-have tool in your kitchen if you prepare a lot of poultry meat!
This Garasuki knife is part of the Tojiro's DP knife series, featuring popular VG-10 core steel, clad into two layers of softer steel for easier sharpening. A durable and fairly light stamina wood handle is used, allowing for an ergonomic and fatigue-less grip. It features a stainless bolster and three rivets for a secure handle fixation, reducing the possibility of cracks in the handle.
⚠️ Garasuki knives are usually single bevel, and this one is no different. Suitable for only right-handed users!
