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.

    4  Fujiwara 270mm Gyuto, November 28, 2014

    Baught it a few months ago. F&F was alot better than I thought due to other reviews espcially for the money. Blade came workable ootb until I put it on the stones. Works and is used as my Primary prep knife and holds an edge pretty long. This knife replaced my old Global G2.

    This knife is phenomenal for the price.

    However.....even after patina. The knife is still very reactive. Is not something to leave for co-workers to use.

    Love this knife it is suitable for most tasks and stays screaming sharp, and doesn't chip easily.

    Great knife for the price.
    Gets super sharp after hitting the stones and will hold an edge for a good while. However the fit and finish left a little to be desired for example the handle was sanded unevenly at the butt of the knife. The rivets are not completely flush as well and the spine needs to be rounded. It is great for everyday prep and makes easy work of vegetables and meat but struggles with potatoes and releasing starchy food. Would advise saving up and spending a little extra on another knife.

    Nice first Japanese knife and I have had fun personalizing it. A patina (like Mark demonstrates), smoothed the edges of the spine and heel as the metal is not rounded, finally put a mirror edge on the sucker and began to shave . . . not really except for some arm hair.

    This is a no-frills knife that is flat enough that slicing potatoes was difficult as they stuck to the blade. Everything else has been awesome. I am able to chop onions like a pro and my knife time in the kitchen has dropped considerably. No complaints for a knife in this price range but now that I have a little experience I would probably save up for a little bit better one.

    Still, all the rest of my knives stay in the block as I always reach for my Fujiwara!

    Awesome value. Can't beat the geometry and ease of sharpening. Feels like a 7 santoku in my hand, but handles 3 heads of romaine at once.Need to br diligent yo keep it clean and dry, but not too fussy. I highly recommend this knife for anyone interested in carbon or asymmetrical edges or trying a very large gyuto. I use it in a professional kitchen, and it holds up well.

    Got the as a Christmas gift for myself. Really great knife. Puts on a really sharp edge and has great weight. The length feels natural and an extension of your arm. Finish isn't great but if you work with a towel and make sure it is wiped after every use it's not an issue. I had some oxidation that was easily buffed out at my local knife shop for free. Feels like a 300 dollar knife for a fraction of the money. Can't go wrong
