I need a new boning knife and was just wondering if anyone had thoughts on these three types, or other ideas. I have always used a western boning knife and like it but the Hankotsu's just look really cool, are they similar in use?

No, IMHO, they're not all that similar in use.

Western boning knife to me is flexible, extremely thin blade.

Hankotsu is extremely right hand bias, thick and very stiff.

The Honesuki is not as thick, but much wider with a fine tip. Still thicker than what I recall of a western boning knife.

Hey thanks, generally used for boning out chickens and on occasion sides of beef or pork. Home cook, so not for a professional kitchen.

Yeah, a hankotsu will work for those tasks....as will the honesuki. I prefer the hankotsu as a dedicated boning knife, but I prefer the honesuki as an overall knife. I often times find myself using a honesuki like a petty.
