The funayuki is a classification of knives that refers to a range of different design features. In the Sakai tradition, it is a small, thinner deba knife, with a single bevel. In the Tosa region, it became common to give the knives a double bevel and use them as a gyuto would be used. Our latest blacksmith find, Kyohei Shindo, works and resides in Tosa, so his rendition of the funayuki follows in the local tradition.

Two features common to funayukis are a fairly flat blade profile with a relatively little belly, and short, handy size. The Enjin SRK8 Funayuki 165mm certainly ticks those boxes!

The first knives in this new line are made with SRK8 steel which is an alloy that boasts some similarities to Hitachi Shirogami #2. In the case of SRK8, chrome and nickel are added for extra toughness and resilience. The steel is heat-treated to HRC 63+. It should therefore hold a good edge and be easy to sharpen.

These are really good looking knives featuring a well-done kurouchi finish on the upper blade road that fades to a nice matte sand-blasted lower portion. The core SRK8 steel shows really well against this backdrop. A great looking burnt oak wood handle with an urushi finish makes a perfect match for the blade.

      Stunning knife., October 8, 2021
    Posted By: Jon Burnett

    I was just looking around the website and this knife caught my eye, a new smith and a new steel for me. It sharpens up very well and is easy to sharpen too, it is Shirogami #2 with a bit of CR chucked in so it will serve you well.
    The knife is fun to use very rustic and hand hammered and ticks a lot of boxes, it has a belly so can rock and a tip for detail and also a flat spot for chopping, the handle is just stunning in the hand, simple and elegant. Really pleased with this purchase and as ever great work from the gang at the shop.
