description(s):

"It would be nice if there is a knife with a round tip so that kids can use it to sharpen pencils." A smithy, Toru Yamashita, in Kochi-pref., Japan, first created a knife modeled after Sperm Whale based on such a request. Together with other variations of Kujira (whale) knives such as Fin Whale, Minke Whale, and Bryde's Whale, the product line became award-wining, popular souvenir items of Kochi-pref., Japan.
