Morning rituals and the toast exactly how you like it, the weight of this knife in your hand, and later, hanging out next to a handblown butter keeper and your favorite bread, as the soup steams and warms your faces.

Over the years and decades, the brass handle on this knife will change, the color becoming richer, more subtle. Made by Futagami, a brass foundry that began in 1897, making pieces for Buddhist altars and for ship fittings.
