The Funayuki knife was created to be used by fishermen aboard their boats. Funayuki translates as ‘going on a boat’. However, you do not need to be on one to use it. In the kitchen, the Funayuki knife is perfect for fileting fish or breaking down poultry and also for everyday cooking. The pointed tip allows for better control and the weight distribution of the knife helps glide through any ingredient with ease. Avoid cutting through bones or frozen ingredients to maintain a sharp-edged blade.
