Random pic #11: Worth its weight in gold

Block of maguro being cut in the Tsukiji market by what looks more like a sword than a knife. Once three or four good-sized chunks had been lined up on the table, the men wrapped them in plain newsprint and whisked them away. At some point one of these guys mentioned a price of 6,000,000 yen (~US$58,000), which I guess would be for the whole tuna.
Note upward-gazing head in the background.
