Yasunori Blue #2 Funayuki 165mm

Yasunori are a new company we recently discovered on our trip to Japan. They are a small shop producing a limited range of kitchen knives at very reasonable prices. Owner, Yaunori-san, undertakes the entire production himself, from forging to heat treating, grinding and edging.

Rather than using cost saving methods like kurouchi finishes and cheap handles, his blades feature attractive brushed lower blade roads and hairline finishes. He even hand engraves the fine kanji script that decorates the blade.

He uses Blue #2 as the core steel which is then covered with a soft stainless awasi. Adding a stainless outer layer reduces maintenance to a minimum and strengthens the blade while reducing weight. Of course you will need to keep it dry and clean between uses as the core carbon steel will rust if left wet.

This is a classic Funayuki in so much as it has a fairly flat blade profile with relatively little belly. It is a short knife which is a great complement or replacement for a gyuto or chef knife. It really is a jack of all trades in the kitchen and a bargain for what it represents in materials and execution. We are very pleased to be the first seller of these interesting knives in the USA. We hope that the reaction will be positive and that we can add more designs to his line in the near future.

    4  Great line knife!, January 30, 2017
    Posted By: Evan - verified customer

    Loving this knife! It's a great little line knife. Nice thin tip to mince shallots, but enough belly to glide through fish and produce. Pretty sharp out of the box but I would touch it up on a finishing stone. The only small issue I have with the knife is that the handle is set just slightly off center. It doesn't affect performance at all.
