This Guy Makes Super Sharp Knives Of The Weirdest Things

These butcher knives are made out of dried fish, candy and pasta — and they’re almost as sharp as the real thing. YouTuber Kiwami Japan makes these unusual knives. The process for each blade is complicated. For a cling wrap knife, the roll needs to be melted first, then shaped into a knife form. An aluminum foil knife has to be pounded into a thin sheet and pasta/candy knives have to be put into molds first. The dried fish knife is made from a block of dried and smoked bonito tuna called katsuobushi, which is widely regarded as the hardest food on Earth. The katsuobushi is shaved into a knife form first before the blades are ready to be sharpened. In different videos, different sharpening stones are used, so that the unusual blades can be razor sharp. The knives not only look like the real thing, but they cut like it, too. So, if you’re in the market for a fancy new butcher knife, it actually doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Instead, you can grab some tin foil, some hard candy or some seriously dried fish and watch Kiwami Japan’s videos in order to turn them into cutlery.
