Fujiwara Maboroshi Santoku (All purpose Knife) 165mm Western Handle:

In the knife world Fujiwara needs no introduction and is known for handmade, razor sharp knives.

About Fujiwara: Fujiwara is a Japanese sword manufacturer established 140 years ago.
Fujiwara Teruyasu is a 4th generation blacksmith from Tokyo.
These knives are made with the same manufacturing methodology of a Katana (Japanese swords)

Fujiwara Teruyasu is known as the creator of san mai.
San mai is a 3 layer steel fabrication with the outside layers protecting the prized core steel.
A technique used on most good many knives today.
Fujiwara is also known to be the creator of nashiji finish.” (English: pear skin pattern)

These knives have an extremely high heat treatment
They are known for holding an unmatched razor edge.  

As a chef these are some of my personal favorite knives to use.
They represent everything I love about good quality knives:
Hand made, razor sharp and built to last.

Stainless steel is regarded by many as not ideal for holding an edge and sharpness. (subject to debate)
A lot of the prized Japanese steels lack stainless steel.
They have little corrosion resistance and may rust easily if mistreated.
This knife is stainless clad but still has a Yasuki White #1 steel core meaning you get the best of both worlds.
A high carbon cutting edge and some corrosion resistance on the outside.
The core steel will darken over time (patina) with use.

Recommended for professionals or individuals with some experience with Japanese knife care requirements.

If you misuse this knife, it may chip.
If you drop this knife, it may snap.
If you cleaver bones, It may chip.
These knifes are not toys. If these knifes are treated well they should last a lifetime.

*All knives are obviously hand made. No two knives are the same.
As a result of being fully hand made some knives come with certain “imperfections.”

Artistically beautiful and razor sharp!
