Fujiwara knives are beautifully crafted, handmade knives from Japanese sword manufacturer, Fujiwara (established in the 1880s - that’s 140 years ago!). Fujiwara Teruyasu is a 4th generation blacksmith from Tokyo who makes these knives using the same manufacturing methodology of a Katana (Japanese swords). Fujiwara Teruyasu is known as the creator of San Mai, a 3-layer steel fabrication with the outside layers protecting the prized core steel. This has become a popular method for manufacturing Japanese kitchen knives today.
These knives are specially crafted for edge retention, ease of sharpening and exceptional cut quality.
