The Konosuke 240mm Funayuki Gyuto is a knife made exclusively for CKTG. This is a new and refined version of our most popular Gyuto.

It features a larger flat spot towards the front of the edge, which is perfect for general kitchen use especially among those who like to employ a push/pull rather than rocking style of cutting.

Unlike normal Funayukis this knife has a 2-sided edge. The grind is slightly convex and super thin which results in a knife that is extraordinarily light and nimble. The steel used is Konosukeís proprietary, fine grained, HD semi stainless. Needing less maintenance than a carbon blade it still displays the sharpening prowess associated with full carbon knives. It does require the user to clean and dry it carefully after use. It will eventually take on a lovely patina, which further adds a protective element to the blade.

Fit and finish are up to the renowned Konosuke standards as is the out of the box razor sharp edge. It comes with a lovely Ho wood octagonal handle and Water Buffalo ferrule. An optional saya is available.

  • Weight: 5oz
  • Blade length: 231mm

    Outstanding performance,superb cutter. When it arrived I pulled it out the box and ran some quick tests,with no extra sharpening. I like to try cutting a thick carrot into paper thin slices and gauge the effort it takes. The Konosuke HD required just a very tiny effort to push cut,and using a forward slice it simply glides through a carrot with just it’s own (very light!) weight applied. It cuts so smoothly that it feels about like slicing a ripe yellow squash instead of a hard carrot... really. It’s a beautiful knife and an absolute pleasure to use.



    This knife is quite similar to my standard profile Konosuke HH stainless gyuto which is also superb. But this knife,with it’s funayuki profile,is a little sleeker and narrower near the tip. I find that it lends itself just a bit better to fine detail cuts,providing a little more control when using the front of the knife. Both the HD funi and HH stainless are so good that I haven’t yet decided which I prefer. I’ll be keeping both!



    Fit and finish are very good with nicely rounded spine and choil for handling comfort. Mine came with a buffalo horn ferrule,which I thought was a nice touch. Very fast shipping and service!

    Outstanding performance,smooth superb cutter. OOTB it was able to glide through thick carrots with no pressure applied other than the very light weight of its blade. The funayuki profile,with its sleeker and more pointed tip works well with fine cuts and improves ease of control.



    Very good fit and finish with nicely rounded spine and heel for handling comfort. Mine came with a buffalo horn ferrule,which I thought was a nice touch. Very fast shipping and service!

    Despite reading countless reviews on blogs and forums praising Konosuke in general (and the HD line in particular),this knife has so far exceeded all expectations. Looks and feels like a work of art. The balance is surprisingly even (rather than blade heavy),probably because of the heavier ebony,but the knife still feels like a natural extension of my wrist rather than a kitchen instrument. OOTB edge is great on general foods,but not polished enough for "scary" sharp cutting of tougher-skinned foods. It also feels like it has a very slight,uneven burr or wire along the front edge to the touch. I expect I will love this knife even more once I give it a nice,high polish/strop after its first month of useóthe factory edge is certainly good enough to get used to the shape and geometry of the blade before giving it a personalized edge. Service,as usual,was excellent from answering questions through product arrival. Thank you!
