What is the differences between Garasuki and Honesuki are: Garasuki knife is for filleting whole chicken Garasuki blade is little thicker than Honesuki and it is not flexible, and the blade is longer with not much curve near by the blade tip. Honesuki is for deboning rib meat, so it has little more curve to be easier to remove the meat from the bones and little more flexible blade with less thickness. The blade is little shorter too.
