We really enjoy recommending this brand of knives to customers looking to try their hand with a Japanese blade in general or carbon blade in particular. It marks a good entry point to this genre without the higher costs normally associated with these knives.
The Fujiyama FKH series are mono-steel, high carbon knifes made with a carefully ground blade and good all round fit and finish. The carbon steel is capable of taking a really sharp edge and keeping that edge throughout the longest prep session. Retuning that sharpness to the blade is a task that should not be difficult, even for a novice.
is a Japanese style slicer. Long and slim. Light and agile. Capable of cutting the thinnest slices of meat, poultry or fish...and all in one easy stroke. But due to its thin grind and light weight, it can also tackle vegetable slicing with equal ease and effect.
The grind on this blade is very well executed and the total knife weight is a comfortable 6.4 ounces. A pakka wood handle and finely finished steel bolster aid in this regard. Lovers of either pinch or western grip styles will be very happy with this handle.
The Fujiwara FKH Sujihiki
is a really fine knife with performance and looks that match knives costing many times its bargain price. If you are searching for a speciality blade to add to your knife quiver or you are setting out on the Japanese knife road, then this would be a great place to start that journey...without breaking the bank.
