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. The 270mm Sujihiki is a great slicer. It can handle roasted birds or meats of almost any size and makes slicing a breeze.
This knife rocks ! I have a couple of different knives in this line from fujiwara and I am totally satisfied with all of them . I recently got this knife and it came with good if not great fit and finish the out of the box edge was pretty good but it sharpened right up with ease. The only downside of this knife (which doesn’t bother me) is that it is slightly softer steel than some of the other Japanese knives but I get a full 5 working days in a prof. kitchen before i need to sharpen this knife and I use it quite a bit instead of a chef knife or gyuto !
Very surprised at the quality of this knife because it is so affordable. Fairly sharp OOTB,sharpens up easily,nice profile,nice pakkawood handle,nice fit and finish for a japanese knife. i am amazed at what i got for the money...

I got this knife the same time as I got the Shun sujihiki 9.5 inches. this knife is just as good if not better than my Shun,better price and is lighter. Itís also about 20% thinner than the shun and makes slicing a breeze. Amazing knife for an amazing price.
