The knife is multi purposed for kitchen cooking, and comes from Japan. You can get them from five to eight inches long.

These knives are great for mincing, chopping and dicing food.

The only drawback to these knives are, that the edges are thin, so it is not recommended for cutting such things hard like bones. They also are not similar to a traditional knife, because they are short and have thin blades.
