Don't forget these...

Not all blacksmiths dreamt of being a blacksmith. Hokkaido born Kyohei Shindo however, dreamt of being a blacksmith from a young age and accomplished just that by opening up his own shop in Tosa city, in Kōchi prefecture by age 32.

His knives are characterized by having a tapering spine yet incredibly thin cutting edge, and a Tosa lacquered kurouchi finish. For the price, the out of box edge and performance of a knife like this is seldom beat.

Funayuki, a knife once developed to be the only knife fishermen needed on a boat. Today's modern approach has a few changes to its initial conception. It is now a more delicate knife, meaning the spine is thinner than what it used to be so we don't advise filleting a fish with it.

What it does have going for it though is a very aggressive pointed tip like a bunka, which then gently slopes back towards the spine like a santoku. A great knife choice for cutting carrots with minimal wedging or if you're simply in the mood for a bit of a hybrid between a santoku and a bunka.
