This is the big boy in the Fujiwara Carbon series of knives. The long bladed Gyuto measures an impressive 270mm at the edge and has a blade height of almost 55mm. But despite these oversized specs it is a svelte knife at just 9 ounces. This is achieved partially due to the very thin grind which is pegged at 2.3mm at the heel. This grind continues along the blade fading to a nice distal tapper close to the fine tip. The edge has a pronounced asymmetrical bevel and a nice flattish profile. But with enough belly to satisfy rocking style users.
Fujiwara construct this blade from a high carbon steel called SK-4. It is a good steel for edge retention and sharpening but comes with the need for careful maintenance in the corrosion department. Keeping it dry at all times while not in use is the number one priority. However a patina will develop over time, or you can force one, which will aid in this endeavor.
The light blade and nicely finished Pakka wood handle give the big knife a small and nimble feel. So if you have the kitchen space and cutting board dimensions capable of accommodating the jumbo size we say go for it. At the unbelievably low price we are selling it, this super Gyuto could be all the knife you need for the majority of your kitchen work.
Weight: 9.2 ounces

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.
