Master blacksmith Takeo Murata has crafted a line of fine and beautiful knives under the Buho brand name which we are very pleased to carry. Occupying a central spot in this line is the funayuki 165mm, a general purpose blade straddling the line between a gyuto and a santoku.

Murata-san favors Blue Paper #1 carbon steel and his screaming edges, fine grinds, and precise balance are a testament to this great steel and his masterful skills. He has hardened the steel to 61-63 Rockwell and then applied a beautiful kurouchi finish. This black hammer finish aids in ease of maintenance while adding an aesthetic appeal that is hard to resist!

The octagonal ho wood wa handle looks and feels great and adds to the overall beauty and balance of this fine instrument.

    This one was surprisingly light and nimble. Its basic, but well made, and with a old school charm and rustic feel. The shape is useful for most home cooking prep work, it can do a little rocking and is not crazy thin. I am not all that fond of the protective coating, it seems like potatoes are sticking pretty bad to it. But my guess that roughing it up a little with some sandpaper will take care of that issue.

    It's a cool looking knife, and it has blue steel at this price. I like the lacquer over the rustic finish.
    The blade I received has some definite fit n finish issues. The point looks as though it was broken off, then someone ground it from the spine side to sort of do a quick repair. The blade is bent from the handle, and the edge is bent in a few different directions. For sure needs some work. Definitely needs to be straightened. The factory edge has a couple minor chips in it, no big deal but certainly noted.
    I must say my Tojiro knives have MUCH better fit n finish. I am feeling somewhat un happy with this well anticipated purchase.

    incredible knife. Great edge, truly well made, well worth the price, just as good a 200 knife IMHO.

    I use it to cut protein on the griddle. Very sharp, light weight and good edge retention but the handle might little bit slippery when your hand is oily/wet, but overall it's good knife.

    This knife is a surprising deal. Fit, finish, and handle are average, but performs well right alongside the Nenox s1 and Takeda's (which I have both) on the line.

    This is a versatile knife and very useful during service. It wasn't extremely sharp out of the box, but a couple passes on the stone set it right. The handle is very comfortable in the hand and looks great, too. I am very satisfied with this purchase and, as always, the customer service was awesome. Thanks CK2G!

    Light as a feather and sharpe as a razor out of the box. Nice wood handle, very nice blade with a smooth Kurochi finish. Great grind makes this a handy small gyuto or large petty. Great for doing delicate prep on smaller veges. I have been using it for over two weeks and the edge is as sharpe as I the day I got it. Blue #1 should sharpen up very well. Great quality and a real bargain. Buy it!
