Funayuki Blue steel #2 Kurouchi Buffalo Magnolia Handle 210mm

Regular price¥17,800
/
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.

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.

First Japanese Knife, What a Difference!

I have worked in the restaurant industry for many year. I have always used typical restaurant knifes, like those delivered by the knife service. What a difference working with a high quality knife made with excellent steel. I cannot imagine going back.

Best knife ever!

I bought this knife for my wife for our anniversary. I was a pleasant surprise and she was delighted to use it immediately. It cuts so well it is addictive. In fact, if we are both in the kitchen prepping we fight over who gets to use it. I see another one in our future.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
