The funayuki knife originated as an all-around blade used mainly on fishing boats. Nowadays the name is given to various types or designs depending on the knife maker. However a few commonalities exist between the various makes. Mainly, the blade has a fairly flat profile and shorter overall length. Many times the profile is applied to standards like gyuto or chef knives.

The short length and flat profile make this a perfect blade for most small cutting tasks and delicate work on garnishes. It is also a good choice for breaking down or filleting fish and other small proteins.

The Yamashin White #1 funayuki is a short all-purpose knife made from White #1 carbon steel. It features a nice rugged looking kurouchi finish which goes a long way in protecting the carbon blade from rust and corrosion. The profile is ground evenly on both sides so it will be good for both left- and right-handed users. The edge is really quite good right out of the box, especially given its very economical price. Of course, White #1 will sharpen up easily so a touch up on your favorite high grit stone will result in a super sharp and agile jack of all trades cutting machine.

The walnut and pakka wood handle is a nice addition to this great little blade, and a real treat at such a great price point. Highly recommended as an introduction to Japanese knives.

      Funayaki 135mm, March 7, 2022
    Posted By: Yaniv Adler

    I got this 135mm around six months ago had plenty of good time working with it. It is my work Horse daily knife. For small tasks / filling small fish. The only thing out of the box It needed to be sharpened and the edge is super sharp until today. Beside a weekly strapping. The only modification I did is polish the spine and the choy lol but thatís me.
    Highly recommended if youíre looking for a budget well crafted knife

    Thx chef knifes to go.

    Sharp, I thought it had an edge on both sides but it doesn't. Light and easy. Glides through an onion. Edge was a little funky out of the box, but a run on my ceramic steel did the trick. Fun and strong. Keep it dry-the finish is not forgiving.

    Bought this to use as more of a tall petty. Edge was extremely well finished by CKTG. Extremely versatile for smaller jobs and quick tasks.

      Nice!, February 8, 2016

    For a knife like this, with a HANDLE like this, to be $60 theres of course going to be a little work on your end thats just to be expected with pretty much every knife if you want perfectly smooth Fit/Finish.. The blade is nice and thick at the heel with a hair of distal daper all the way (not really but kinda) and thins at the grind for a very sturdy tip that one newer to J-knives wouldn't have to worry about breaking. IF you like the KU finish then i have good news because it actually is fairly well done it seems not to come off from rubbing or wiping it however I don't know how long it will last because I plan to take it off immediately and polish the whole thing! Surprisingly good edge on it too I was pleasantly surprised and id say 5or 6/10 for sure, handle was darker than pictured id say half way between that id say nice medium brown, quite good ferrule/handle junction very, very minimal bumps, better handle finish than my Kohetsu gyuto and Fujiyama blue petty TBH. not sure if all handles will be this nice but if they are than kudos to you!
