Free forged knives vary slightly

Hand forged knives from the Tosa area of Shikoku Island, Japan's least populated island with a long history of smithing. Shikoku's thick forests, agriculture and fisheries have led to a local style of smithing that is characterized by rustic free forged knives and tools. Many Tosa knives are ryoba style; forged and ground symmetrically and are suitable for both right and left hand users.

Please note, these can have cosmetic scratches or small imperfections in handles which will not impede the performance of the knife. This is par for the course on these knives and is part of how they sell them for a very reasonable price. We have been very happy with the quality for the price and their old style country feel.

Funayuki are symmetrical ryoba ground san mai knives, forged and ground thin for vegetables and boneless proteins.

This is a reactive carbon steel. It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.

These knifes come from the maker with lacquer on the blade for corrosion protection during shipping. It can be removed using acetone or lacquer thinner (follow manufacturers instructions for use).

We can remove the lacquer prior to shipping for $10. Enter "Please remove lacquer" in the +Special Instructions on the Cart page and you will be invoiced separately via email. This could delay shipping by up to 5 days and won't be shipped until payment is made.
