Hand made unmarked Edo style (Tokyo) eel breaking knife with iron clad shirogami 2 blade, ho handle and horn ferrule. 

Eel knives vary a lot over Japan with each region having thier own style of eel knife. The Kanto region has a very different style due to the history of eels being butchered from the back instead of the belly. There is a theory that in Edo breaking them from the belly was too reminiscent of seppuku and the back was preferred.
