I think I might have to get me some of these

Kujira_Whale_Knives-both-8801

I am starting to amass a small collection of Whale related items…I saw these on Boing Boing…I might just have to get some. I don’t think there is an Orca knife though.

These whale-shaped Kujira knives were created by Japanese blacksmith Toru Yamashita, who was asked to make a knife for children to sharpen pencils with. The result is a slightly blunt, kid-friendly tool that’s whimsical, hand-forged and gorgeous. And as Core77′s Kat Bauman points out, US residents can get this shipped in time for Christmas from Hand Eye Supply if they order by noon
