We are always keen to introduce as many people as possible to the wonderful world of Japanese (carbon) kitchen knives. And to make that introduction as financially practical as possible we recommend these high value, high quality knives made by Fujiwara Kanefusa of Japan. Carbon steel blades are a very particular breed of knife and as such require extra care and attention to the details of maintenance and sharpness. But fear not, this is a regime easy to practice and follow.

The reactive nature of the SK-4 high carbon steel employed in these knives is only problematic if ignored. Keeping the blade very dry between uses is essential in combatting corrosion. Forcing a patina is a great way to aid with this and it is easily achieved. Just watch the video below to see how to do it.

The nicely ground asymmetrical edge comes out of the box very sharp. It will stay that way for a long time if cared for and brushed up with a strop or ceramic rod from time to time. Resharpening on stones is likewise a fairly easy endeavor with this steel. The 240mm blade length is all you need for even the largest jobs. But the thin grind and lightweight Pakka wood handle give this knife a quick and nimble feel. A profile favoring neither belly or flatness means that you can use a push/pull or rocking technique with equal success. The Fujiwara Carbon Gyuto 240mm is a fine knife indeed. A great introduction to the genre. And a screamingly great deal.

    My first Japanese carbon steel. Not the best knife I've owned, but certainly one of the sharpest. And for the price you can't beat it. I would definitely buy from the Fujiwara carbon line again.

    A good deal for the money. There wasn't any odor or off taste left on food after the first week of use. A nice patina has developed repeatedly after sharpening and occasional hard scrubs. Speaking of sharpening, it takes a pretty nice edge. After a couple weeks out of the box I thinned it a bit, though the initial grind is more than functional. I cook for a living and purchased this with the goal of a workhorse. Even under this kind of use it held it longer than my Kono HH. That being said, results may vary in regard to steel properties and fit and finish. So guess it could be seen as a bit of a gamble but for 90 bucks, you can't really go wrong. In my case, I feel I have gotten more than my 90 dollars. I recommend this knife. Also, great service from CKTG.

    The Fujiwara Gyuto is an awesome introduction into the world of high-carbon knives. I have purchased 2 -- 1 for myself and then 1 as a gift. Both were deliciously sharp out of the box and take a nice natural patina. The edge hold up rather well, and sharpening is a breeze, like the knife is hungry to take on an edge. Overall balance is very nice. For the money, I'm not sure you can do better.

    great knife for the price, this knife has literally kicked out a few of my other knives from my bag. had it for a few weeks now, still has a decent edge on it. left it out one day and co-worker decided to use it but didn't dry it completely then put it on magnet strip. not a good end result as you could imagine. overall great knife, great service, looking forward to some future purchases.

    It's very good knife. I rate 4 stars becose on my knife engraving is done by machine (laser) not like we can see on video - made by hand deep in the blade.

    out of box sharpness is ok. FF is ok. I think you get what you pay for. It's very reactive. I'm planning to run it through some stones and see how much it can improve.

    the fujiwara is a real thin blade and is easy to sharpen with the diamond steel i bought in chef knives. I use it every day in the kitchen where i work . Im glad I bought this.

    I was looking for a carbon Gyuto to play around with and this fit the bill nicely.

    Sharpens up nicely and I haven't found mine to be particularly reactive. Fit and finish on mine were better than expected for the price. The spine defiantly needed to be rounded; mine was rather uncomfortable in a pinch grip until I rounded it.

    For the price I am more than happy and think its a great intro knife to both gyutos and carbon knives.

    Fit and finish are not great with this knife, but the blade and price are great. This is a great intro into carbon knives. It developed a patina at a reasonable pace and as far as carbon goes was not overly reactive. The blade holds an edge well. It is a little handle heavy, but overall a good knife.

    For the money I really don't think there is a better knife. Tojiro DP are world renowned in this price range but are not Carbon. This thing gets super sharp, handle is great and knife is just comfortable. Sure it is not perfect finish but for someone who wants to try a Japanese Knife with little experience ... look no further
