What many consider to be the best line of knives for an introduction to Japanese steel, the FKM series from Fujiwara Kanefusa is made from Molybdenum/Vanadium stainless steel. With an HRC rating of 58-59, this steel holds a razor sharp edge. Equipped with black Pakka wood handles and stainless steel bolsters, these knives are exceptionally well balanced. These knives provide unparalleled performance at this price point and are one our most recommended lines. The 145mm Boning knife is also known as a Honesuki. It is great at deboning chicken or frenching lamb bones.
Again the fujiwara FKM series amazes me for the value. a true bargain. This boning knife came with a very good factory edge. I didnt sharpen it until I had cleaned 50 chickens. When I did sharpen it I was thrilled by the edge it took. For the dollar spent,maybe the best knife I have ever purchased.
Great knife,very stiff,good wieght in the handle. As far as values go,it’s hard to beat. Only thing I would change is to offer a version in Carbon steel for those who prefer it.

Perfect blade thickness excellent edge great work horse
I bought this knife only to add a honesuki to my collection. Wow! F & F are average,but it has a hamaguriba (convex blade profile) and excellent OOTB sharpness. Lamb chops seem to peel off the rack instead of being cut off. Chicken bones seem to rise out of the meat by magic. Do not hesitate to buy this knife.
