This funayuki is a popular general purpose knife used by many Japanese home cooks. Knives in Japanese homes tend to be smaller than in the US and they tend to enjoy the added control of a smaller blade. Nishida is a young blacksmith working near Nagasaki Japan and he does excellent hand forged knives. This series features Hitachi White #1 steel and is protected and reinforced with a soft iron cladding using a nice polished finish. They come with a very nice rosewood oval handle with black pakka wood ferrule. These knives are reactive so you need to dry with a towel after you wash them.
