Toru Yamashito, a blacksmith from Japan, created a series of beautiful, high-carbon steel utility knives that just happen to be shaped like whales. As you’ll see after the break, the knives are made to look like five different types of whales (I think the humpback is my favorite!). They’re actually utility knives, which means that they can be used for just about any daily task ranging from opening letters to dicing up some apples.
Kujira Whale Knives are hand forged Multi Purpose Utility knives that have a Virgin High Carbon White Steel #2 inner core with a “Kurouchi” Black Forged finish and handle. Famed for their playful and imaginative whale shaped handles and their durable edge retentive blades these unique knives are sure to be a conversation piece.
