Konosuke White #1 Gyuto 240mm. The Konosuke Fujiyama line of kitchen knives is the stuff of legend. For as long as they have been made, these knives have received universal praise for their extraordinary designs, grinds, and fit and finish. Over the years Fujiyama knives have been hard to come by, and as a result, high on the lists of collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.
The original Fujiyama sharpener recently took some time off, which caused a break in production. The new sharpener is now up to speed and Fujiyamas are once again in stock, albeit briefly! The first wave of new knives bears the FM nomenclature to differentiate them from older varieties and some one-off specials that occasionally pop up.
The knife featured here is one of the latest iterations of the new variety, in that it bears some lovely hand engraved kanji elements made by master engraver Mr. Kawamura. Otherwise this is pure Fujiyama fare. From the stunning polishing and grinds to the extraordinary fit and finish, these blades are heirlooms in every regard.
