We have several very fine cutlery lines we recommend to people looking to get into Japanese knives. The FMK line from Kanefusa Fijiwara is one that ranks up with the best and receives our enthusiastic recommendations time after time.

The FKM brand may be budget in price but itís rich in features and quality. The collection features a great mono-steel construction made from a Molybdenum and Vanadium stainless steel. Corrosion and discoloration are non issues with this easy to maintain blade. It also comes with a sharp edge that is long lasting and easy to sharpen. 240 mm gyutoís are fairly large knives capable of making light work of larger products. However their relatively slim blade and nice pointed tip allow for precision cutting and prepping of even small garnishes. The edge is nicely flat to about the 2/3 point where it gently curves to the fine tip. The blade has a thin grind which is reflected in the fairly light weight of the knife. This light weight is reinforced by the black Pakka wood handle which falls nicely to hand and gives the knife a nice balance point just forward of the bolster. The Fujiwara FKM Stainless Gyuto 240mm represents serious bang for the buck and a perfect entry point into the world of Japanese knives.

    This is my first Japanese knife. After reading through countless reviews I chose this one and I love it so far. It came very sharp OOTB with what I believe is a 70/30 bevel. It's balanced perfectly right by the bolster. Great price for a great knife!

    Fujiwara 240mm Gyuto
    Nice handle, comfortable grip, big enough for a large hand. The fit and finish is good, though not as refined as the high end Shun's. Sharpness out of box is ok, didn't test it on any food, but I will guess it's about 15 degree per side. Not scary sharp, but should be very workable.
    Personally, the handle is a hair bigger than I hoped, and 240mm is actually a bit too long for me. I am more inclined to a 210mm as I think I want a more nimble knife to work with. For dispatching large amount of food though, the 240mm will work well.
    Eventually I returned the knife. The customer service is very good. I have no complaints. Mark Richmond is helpful.

    First off I want to thank! Mark for the prompt service. The knife is very light for a 240mm gyuto and has a nice profile now what surprised me most is that it was sharp but not scary sharp out the box like my global G-16 but I'm sure that once is sharpened on some water stones it will be a laser, I believe before spending some serious cash on something more high end newbies should start with this great Japanese starter knife not to say a pro wouldn't use this but for learning sharpening techniques this is the way to go...

    Excellent value for the $. Great intro to Japanese chefs knives.

    Light weight, well balanced, very nimble, comfortable handle, sharpens easily (even without proper whetstones), will take a great edge, 70/30 bevel makes it seem even sharper.

    Fit and finish is very good but not perfect.

    A definite improvement in overall feel, sharpness, and ability to keep that sharpness compared to my previous western knives.

    If you have decent knife skills this knife will allow you to be much faster than the heavy western chefs knives you may be used to.

    Overall very happy with the purchase as I was looking for a true value introduction to Japanese knives, and can only imagine what the knives twice this price are like.
