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. They provide unparalleled performance at this price point and are one our most recommended lines. We, at Chefknivestogo, were recommended as a vendor for this knife in a recent edition of Fine Cooking. The 210mm Gyuto is, hands down, the most popular knife amongst home cooks. It is the perfect size for the home kitchen or when cutting board real estate is at a premium. It is the all-around multi-tasker and great for so many jobs.
This is the best value priced knife on the market. Super sharp out of the box,holds an edge and has a great look and feel. I love the balance and I can’t believe how good this knife is for the price paid.

I LOVE this knife. Well worth it.
Over the holidays I purchased 2 FKM 21o Gyutos as gifts for my Aunts. I inspected the knives when they arrived and they were thin,sharp and the fit and finish were excellent. Both recipients loved them.

I have to say the purchase was as smooth as this knife cuts. I’m an avid home cook with a number of chefs knives,and I wanted to try a Japanese knife. After reading so many reviews,I was so confused I contacted Mark for a recommendation. He recommended the Fujiwara Gyuto,and I couldn’t be happier. The knife arrived 2 days later. Thank you again!
This knife for the price is amazing! i put a new edge on it out of the box,and it still is screaming sharp 2 months later with only a couple times being honed. This edge out lasts shuns i’ve used by twice as long,and sharpens twice as easily

I recently have received this knife thru a raffle at work. I am very pleased with this knife. It cuts very smoothly and evenly. It was very sharp when I first pulled it out of the box. The balance and weight of this knife are perfect for the cooking I do. It also has a very sleek look!!!
Love this knife! It’s my first Japanese knife and by far the sharpest knife I now own.
