Used in Japanese kitchens to make soba and udon noodles, this bad boy was also the favorite tool of a disgruntled chef who, in 1865, went a little crazy with his menkiri one night. According to legend, his ghost wanders the kitchens of expensive Tokyo restaurants wielding his blue menkiri in search of more victims.
5) Flavor Injector: The Needle Knows Best
