The Fujiwara FKM Gyuto measures in at with an impressive 270mm blade length. You really do need a larger kitchen or a chopping board with some serious real-estate to get the most out of this cutting machine.

But if you have that space in your home or commercial kitchen then this is a mighty tool indeed. The 270mm gyuto is great when you have large jobs like cutting several bunches of celery or a whole bag of carrots at once. They are a great prep workhorse and preferred size by many professional cooks. With a fairly generous blade height of 55mm these knives are perfect for those with larger hand or seekers of increased finger to board clearance.

This is a wonderful transition knife for chefs used to the heavier and bulkier western chef knives. It is way more responsive and nimble and is far less fatiguing to use. Its relatively thin grind enhances the cutting abilities and thus the effort required to get through that pile of veggies!

The tough and care free stainless steel blade is high in Vanadium and Molybdenum and makes daily maintenance a breeze. The black Pakka wood handle is also easy on the eye and hand. It gives the knife a very neutral balance point just around the ferrule. This knife is easy to use. Easy on the pocket. And very easy to recommend.

    Beautiful knife! Holds its edge quite well, comfortable in the hand. A bit lighter then it looks.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Good knife with an ok steel.
    If you are just trying the size something lighter might be easier to get used to.

    I bought this as my 'bashing' 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 haven't time for wiping between cuts or are just simply lazy and are likely to leave it in a washing pile to tend to later.

    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 don't hesitate to recommend it.
