This is my new fugu knife… which may sound confusing because I have zero intention of ever preparing puffers at home and never had an “old” one, but as you can see, is an apt description nonetheless. I did not need to sharpen it before use because it was more than razor sharp out of the box – very impressive!. The curved blade has a long sweet spot and makes both chopping vegetables and deboning fowl very easy.
The balance is just about right for chopping, but I may upgrade the handle with moulded Pachmayr grips and uranium counterweights for proper dicing action. Also, after I add a golden chrysanthemum seal and a long tang that supports my finger-forward fighting style, this should prove to be an excellent weapon of mass destruction.
Yes, this is my idea of a political blog post.

Dude, you’ll never believe this: 1050 yen at Tokyu Hands!
Gotta have one. Hey, maybe for my new atelier…what a great Gift-for-the-Cook idea!
Get me some knives, baby!
This was the last one! They had some other fish designs as well, but they weren’t nearly as good. I’ll look for the fugu online.
coolest knife EVER!
