Among the most talked about knives on Chef Knives To Go, the Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 210mm gyuto is an exemple of Japanese handcraftsmanship with uniquely soulful performance. The Fujiwara Nashiji line of knives features san mai construction with a Shirogami #1 carbon steel core wrapped in a low maintenance, high durability stainless steel cladding. The magic of this knife is the extraordinary hardness of the Shirogami #1 core. At a hardness rating of 64-65 HRC, this knife is capable of taking incredibly acute bevel angles and some of the keenest edges in cutlery. The namesake of the knife is its nashiji, or pear skin, finish.

We have started using a new, upgraded rosewood oval handle on these knives. The reason is that the blacksmith was installing the old handles with crooked alignment and also he was only burning in the handle so they were coming off too much. The new ones are better quality and we're installing them ourselves using glue so they should make for a much better product.

Also these knives use hard steel and have steep edges and they can chip if you're not accustomed to using a such a knife. Customers love how well they cut but we're going to hand sharpen these using Japanese natural stones for no charge to help mitigate any chipping issues. Do not cut bones or frozen food or anything hard with this knife.

Another common question is the knives have a spine that shows the exposed white number 2 which is reactive so we get customers that are surprised when they see this middle core start to oxidize and rust if they're left wet. Take a look at the 4th picture that shows the spines of these knives. It's not a defect.

    5  Excellent knife for an excellent chef., September 28, 2015
    Posted By: Scott Shatrowsky

    Picked up a 180mm Gyuto for my girlfriends birthday. Having only generic cutlery for years I really wanted to get her something nice and a blade to grow old with. We had no experience with carbon steel knives so I wanted to go with something low maintenance. I have to admit, I did not purchase this from chefknivestogo, although I did walk into a local cutlery shop (DC Sharp) and they recommended the TF brand. I was basically told that to make his knives/blades more affordable the handles took a cut in quality. That being said, each blade is unique and loaded with character. I replaced the handle for fairly cheap at local cutlery and it made a pretty big difference. On a side note, I recently picked up a maboroshi gyuto 182mm with a octagonal ho wood handle and it actually feels very solid and balanced.

    The quality of the steel is obvious. Since May, this knife has never been sharpened and hasn't skipped a beat. The natural patina took over the cutting edge and maintenance is surprisingly low. I will say, I plan to epoxy where the handle meets the tang to avoid water sitting inside and corroding the tang. I have seen very few makers actually doing this (Takeda is one). Other then that the knife is amazing. Hence me purchasing another one on his line.

    I have a Fujiwara Santuko as well as their 210mm Gyuto I just can not say enough good thing's about them they take an edge very well and hold very well and are not vry hard to sharpen at all for a knife with such a hard steel,you won't regret buying a Fujiwara knife.

    The best gyuto I have used to date and I have used some of the best. This knife is almost magical in it's performance. Now I have to budget for the 240mm!

    There is something magical in the way this knife looks and performs. Love the profile and the knife just falls through food. This knife exudes soul and craftsmanship. Worth every penny and then some.

    Melapus provided an excellent technical review of the 240mm version of this knife that you should refer to as I concur with everything he states.

    The only other thing that needs to be said is that I'd recommend budgeting for a saya because once you use this knife you'll want to sleep with it. You'll love it that much.
