    For Crab,Hankotsu, honesuki, Kanisaki deba, scissors?

    Absolutely love my King Crab dinners at home. We have the forks and crab crackers, but there must be a better way. I don't even know what they use in restaurants to cut the crab legs. Any recommendation for the best way.Hankotsu,honesuki,Kanisaki deba, scissors like tojiro stainless Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Jon,
    I have a misono ux10 gyuto. Is it up to the task? Certainly don't mind using it just don't want to wreck the blade if something heavier is needed. Thanks for your advice and your consistent helpfulness Dave ( boardsmith) was right in recommending you to me when I bought my board. I will definitely have to throw some business your way.

    Thanks for the comments so far. I just know there is a lot of experience with knives and professonal cooks on these boards to help with my conundrum.

    UX10 will work just find for this kind of technique (deba and gyuto combo is better though... some tasks require deab and others gyuto)
