The Funayuki (舟行) is a traditional Japanese knife that is used by fisherman aboard their boats; indeed, Funayuki literally translates in to English as "going on boat". These knives are often used by fishermen to clean, fillet and quality test small or medium-sized fish. However, in the past, fishermen also used their Funayuki to prepare food for themselves (either out at sea, or back at port), so the knife also had to be capable of cutting meat, vegetables and fruit - just like the similarly versatile Santoku and Gyuto.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.
C 1.05- 1.15 % | Cr 0.2-0.5 % | W 1.0-1.5 %

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

I like it

It's not sharpened enough, which isn't a problem, but I expected it to cut more as a start. I still like it.

Product features

Handmade Forging

By applying the traditional forging method, the molecules of iron, which is the material, are finely arranged, leading to the completion of a "live kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for molding is repeated three or four times, and before carbon is released from the steel and the original power is not lost, it is quickly shaped into a blade and creates durability.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important for achieving the best sharpness. Produces uncompromising sharpness that can be sharpened at our own factory with blades.

Handle

We place the highest priority on a shape that is durable, luxurious, easy to grip, and does not get tired even after long-term use.
