Kujira Knives

Tetsu Yamashita, sickle maker by trade and government-certified Japanese Traditional Craftsman, designed Kujira Knife as a starter blade for young people to practice chopping vegetables, sharpening pencils and other beginner-level knife skills. He happened upon the whale concept by chance noticing how a sharpened edge of Japanese steel resembles the sperm whale’s head and its lighter underbelly.

Kujira Knife garnered much attention among knife aficionados, whale lovers and people who simply appreciate good craftsmanship. In the wake of the sperm whale’s success, Mr. Yamashita crafted several new blades emulating the form and beauty of minke, finback and Bryde’s whales. All blades are handmade one-by-one in Tosa, Kōchi Prefecture.
