Killer Tails

Orcas show their smarts by working together to whip up a meal. Here, a pod hunts for herring in Norway’s Andfjorden. Members of the pod coordinate their moves, herding a mass of herring into a manageable ball. They then whip their tails against the ball, stunning or killing the fish.

These awesome utility knives are designed to look like five different species of whale. They’re handmade by Japanese blacksmith Toru Yamashito located in Kōchi Prefecture on the southern coast of Japan. Made of high-carbon steel with blades that form the whales’ baleen-filled mouths, the Kujira Whale Knives were originally created for children as tools for sharpening pencils or cutting paper. Now they’re marketed as multi-purpose tools worldwide. We suspect that animal shapes improve the quality of tools in the same way that cuteness enhances the flavor of food.

Kujira Whale Knives are currently available from Yoshihiro Cutlery via Amazon as well as Hand Eye Supply.
