    Rakuten madness #12524 - 330mm Sugimoto Chukabocho

    http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/subaru/item/4012/





    A rather unique knife - I've certainly never seen a 330mm chuka before (it's not in Sugimoto's catalog either).

    Wonder if it's a #12 as it's like a double #6? (well not quite, but you get the idea).

    Great find.

    Somebody on the old ITK, found a video of a chef from Hong Kong, who went to the main land and returned with a 450mm cleaver. The video showed the knife in action, cutting up extremely fine strands of noodles for a soup.

    My first thought when I saw that was "the edge looks dead flat - menkiribocho?"

    Yeah, it says 'sobakiri'

    But it also says 'chinese cuisine knife'.. that's a little confusing

    Either way its a pretty mean projectile in case of zombie apocalypse

    Chinese noodle knife maybe? I don't know why they called it a sobakiri instead of a menkiri.
