'Funayuki' is a Japanese multi-purpose knife just like the 'Santoku' style (or Chef's knife) designed for everyday cooking and can be used to cut fish, meat and vegetables. The blade is thin and wide. In Japan, the 'Funayuki' style of knife was traditionally used on fishing boats to prepare meals at sea. The name 'Funayuki' came from the shape of the blade which looks like a boat.


 

TOSA traditional skill “Free Forging”

TOSA cutlery started from 1621, over 400 years ago. Forge to finished need many steps, all steps just made from one blacksmith. Easy to control every part and keep it free style to forging, because that’s made by same craftsman. So, that’s why call this skill to “Free Forging”.

With the sound of a violent blow sparks, the way thick steel is transformed into a kitchen knife in the blink of an eye is truly craftsmanship. By hitting it many times with a hammer and stretching it, impurities come out, by making the structure “dense”, it becomes a knife with high hardness and stickiness.

    You can see the marks of the hammer that was struck up with a hammer, it has the characteristic of being handmade by craftsmen and resistant to rust compared to polished finishing.

    KUROUCHI forging with different color for every cutlery. TOSA “KIYOKANE” and “MOTOKANE” with additional process of kurouchi knives. On every knife have different color.

    This knife isn’t using press process and solvent to make the pattern of knife, The final pattern and color of knife just depend on oxide film by random. So, the one and only knives. 

    So many situations can use that double bevel knife. Double bevel knife with more tough of edge than single bevel, and easily to handle, good for Japanese food and western food.

    Because free forging, can be easy to innovation.
    The knife is consistently performed by a single craftsman, without being bound by the framework of the process, so can continue to improve and evolve.

    This knife isn’t mass production.

    We are focus on the knife quality than productivity. You can feel the soul of craftsman. We recommend you use that for gift.
