We are very excited to be able to offer this new knife in the Fujiyama Series by Konosuke. After a brief hiatus from working on these legendary knives, the original Fujiyama sharpener/polisher is once again working his magic on a few amazing blades. These new wide bevel knives are extremely limited offerings and will sell out as soon as we get them in stock, so we strongly recommend adding your name to the waiting list so that you get a chance at owning one of these rare beauties.
Unlike the new Fujiyama FM series, the knife featured here has a shinogi, just like the originals. The unbelievable craftsmanship of both the blacksmith and the sharpener are evident in these heirloom quality blades. The basic shape is true to the Fujiyama name and the wonderful grinds and edges are a true testament to the skill of the team responsible for these sought after classics.
This 270mm gyuto features an Aogami #2 steel core. Aogami #2 is highly regarded for taking very keen edges and holding those edges very well. The core is wrapped in a carbon steel cladding. Since both the core and cladding are reactive, the Fujiyama line of knives will patina with normal use and corrode if abused. The lower blade road is masterfully realized and the transition to the core steel is pure art.
To match this blade Konosuke is providing a very unusual and beautiful Khii Maguro Octagonal handle that is a truly high quality item in and of itself. Like all handmade knives, Fujiyamas may vary one from another dimensionally but of course not in terms of aesthetics or fit and finish, which are of the highest standards every time. This is simply one of our finest offerings!
Blade Length: 263mm
Total Length: 425mm
Spine Thickness at Base: 2.8mm
Blade Height: 53mm
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.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
