Average rating is 4.3
I bought this as my íbashingí knife. A cheaper knife in stainless that I use or give to other people if they are likely to abuse it. Although I normally go for carbon,this is perfect when you havenít time for wiping between cuts or are just simply lazy and are likely to leave it in a washing pile to tend to later. 0.3
Sharpening is relatively pain free (though I have little experience with stainless),and the edge retention,while not as good as a lot of high end knives costing many times more,is more than acceptable. A great entry into Japanese knives,and a great workhorse knife. Excellent value for money here,I donít hesitate to recommend it.
Good knife with an ok steel. 0.3
If you are just trying the size something lighter might be easier to get used to.

Fujiwara is my introduction into the world of Japanese knives so I don’t really have much to compare it to but I absolutely love this knife. It’s become my go to knife for work. It’s too big for me for home use but that’s what I have my 180mm Fujiwara santoku for.0.3
The gyuto came super sharp out of the box. I’ve had it for about a month now,working about 50 hours a week,and haven’t had to take it to the stones yet. So I can’t comment on ease of sharpening.
It’s weighted well. Great fit and finish. I’m extremely happy with this knife for the price.

Fujiwara is an excellent brand with quality knives,and the value is unparalleled. I would compare this Fujiwara series to the Tojiro DP series,and would pick the Fujiwara’s mainly because of the blade height. The DP series is a little on the short side for me.0.3
