Funayuki Knife

Applications of the Funayuki (Boating) Knife

The shape of the knife has been made much thinner. Fishermen use the Funayuki knife to cook simple dishes on their boats. Because it is an all-purpose knife that can be used for cutting small fish and vegetables, people also use it in the home.

How to Select a Funayuki Knife

If it's for professional use, such as cooking Japanese food or fishmongering, you can use a Deba knife. If you are a fishing enthusiast or just want to handle small fish or chop vegetables for home use, the most popular size is 180mm to 195mm, which is easiest to handle.
