Knives

Funayuki


The funayuki is a multi-purpose traditional Japanese knife. The name funayuki, `going on a boat’, comes from a tradition of fishermen, who used these knives to clean and prepare fish on the boat. The blade is extremely thin in order to slice fish and vegetables and requires great skill to successfully utilize without chipping. Traditionally only executive chefs are deemed skilled enough to handle these incredibly sharp but brittle knives.
