Makiri Knife by Masashi Yamamoto

Masashi Yamamoto Makiri 165mm Blackish finish white II steel blade with Magnolia handle and wood cover Please click here to see extra pictures! It is hard to translate the word MAKIRI in English with my knowledge and vocabulary, but if I am not afraid of the mistakes and translating it, MA means space or evil spirit or devil, and KIRI means cutter or slasher in Japanese, so MAKIRI means space cutter (time crunch), or evil spirit cutter or devil slasher. Fishermen is the job that has deep relationship with Mother Nature, so they concern premonition a lot, so they do not want to carry to work on their fishing boat with bad time (feeling) or evil spirit, so they might put on the name of the knife MAKIRI. MAKIRI is carried with them any situations, so it must be handy man and life line. Makiri knife is used by fishermen and fish cutters in fish market or fish product Company. Fishermen in northern part of Japan carry it all the time on their fishing boat or time to fix their net or equipments. It is comfortable to carry the small makiri knife, and it is great for fillet fish or squid or cutting rope or net. Mr. Masashi Yamamoto is the one of three main blacksmiths in Yoshikane, and now, he owns his own business. His older brother takes over Yoshikane business. Please click here to see more detail
