The maguro bocho tuna knife is an extremely long knife that is highly specialized to fillet tuna and other large fish in a single cut. The Maguro knife is commonly found in Japanese fish markets such as Tsukiji Market where they are often seen used to fillet tuna.
This Maguro bocho represents the highest level of traditional Japanese craftsmanship and is an extremely special collectible piece that's truly one-of-a-kind for two main reasons. This knife uses a material that's extremely rare to be used in a Maguro bocho and has an exemplary level of finishing rarely seen for a knife of this length.
Our Yoshihiro Ginsan Maguro Bocho is extremely rare and is perfectly finished in comparison to a standard Maguro bocho. A standard Maguro bocho will typically have a rougher finish with imperfections along the blade and may not have a straight blade due to the difficulty of sharpening and extremely sharp blade.
A custom-matched protective wooden sheath called a Saya is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.
