The Japanese Funayuki Knife was traditionally made as a multipurpose knife use of fishing boats. Today these knives are suitable for all types of tasks around the kitchen due to their simple design and handy size. They still however retain the sea food orientated design elements and are adept at breaking down and filleting fish.
Tyzack are excited to offer this new range of Japanese kitchen knives. These knives feature a double laminated blade with a white paper steel core and are manufactured using an authentic Japanese hand forging process. White paper steel is a traditional high carbon steel that is often used for Japanese knives.
This type of steel allows for an extremely sharp cutting edge that is vastly superior to normal stainless steel kitchen knives. Susceptibility to surface rust is an unavoidable attribute of high carbon steel knives, however the ease of sharpening and superior edge of these knives is worth the small amount of maintenance necessary to maintain them.
