The Five Foot Blade


Knife references appear everywhere. It’s used for threats and murder in film. Often the size of the blade is is what determines the level of threat. Below is the five foot blade. All together with the handle, it’s over six feet. This is used by modern samurai who work in the Tsukiji. The knives are usually shorter, but for that gigantic tuna, some go big.

What’s Tsukiji? It’s the fish market. When a giant bluefin tuna is caught, this blade makes a single perfect slice length wise. A few cuts, and the fish is taken care of in the cleanest manner. The question? How much is one of these knives? In the end, we don’t find out. Thanks Fox… (Fox – Knife)
