Tosa Tadayoshi 135mm Funayuki Aogami 1 Walnut/PC

approx 94 grams 136mm cutting edge, 43mm wide at heel, tapering from 2.5mm thick, 268mm overall. 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.

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.
