Tosa cutlery crafting is found in Kochi prefecture and has been passed down from the beginning of the Edo period (1603–1867). Making use of the traditional techniques, bladesmith Satoshi Yamashita took a request from his children to make a knife without pointed tip so that they could use it themselves to sharpen their pencils. That was how the sperm whale-shaped knife came to fruition. There are now six other whale varieties available, and they are popular as gifts.
These hand forged unique multi-purpose utility knife is sure to be a conversation piece. With proper care, your Kujira Knife will last a lifetime.
Comes with a case.
