This is the larger version of the lovely 240mm FKM Sujihiki. Sometimes extra blade length is not a priority but in the case of a suji it is usually always welcome. A longer blade makes for easier and more efficient slicing..especially with larger cuts of meat and fish.
With a sijihiki this increase in blade length does not impact weight or bulk as much as other knife designs.
Fujiwara have constructed this knife out of a tough and easy to maintain stainless steel. The steel is hardened to a HRC of 58-59 which is softer than many other stainless blades but does not compromise edge retention. In fact, sharpening is made slightly easier due to this reduced hardness. The grind is very well executed and the total knife weight is a comfortable 6 ounces. Speaking of comfort.....that is the best word to describe the black Pakka wood handle and finely finished stainless steel bolster. Pinch or western grip proponents are both catered for with this set up.
The Fujiwara FKM Sujihiki is a really fine knife with performance and looks the equal of knives costing many times itís price. If you are looking to add a speciality blade to your knife quiver without breaking the bank or you are setting out on the Japanese knife road, then this would be a great place to start.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
