Konosuke Fujiyama Blue #2 Gyuto 240mm. These come with the Laurel handles. It is hard to please everyone, it is particularly hard to please all of the most discerning users of high-end cutlery, but the Konosuke Fujiyama line of knives comes very close. The Konosuke Fujiyama line of knives are handmade in Sakai City, Japan by some of the best craftsman in their field. This 240mm gyuto is made with an Aogami #2 carbon steel core hardened to 61-62 HRC wrapped in a soft carbon steel cladding layer. As both steels are reactive, the knife will patina with normal use.
The knife handle is a high quality, octagonal shaped handle with a top quality installation and is made with Laurel wood. While handcraftsmanship imbues these knives with tremendous character, it also gives them slight variations so be aware that each knife will vary some from those pictured. the blade grind is by a new sharpener for 2018 at the direction of the previous one. Please note the photo is of the actual knife you will be purchasing. It has a thin logo after the sharpener thinned the entire blade. Once we sell this one we won't have more for the rest of the year.
