The new Fujin series of knives from one of our most loved blacksmiths takes knife aesthetics to a new level. These are stunning blades in every regard.
Yu Kurosaki makes several different lines of knives under his own name. They have many things in common, including some of the best blade finishes in the business. From the frosty look of his Shimo line to the stunning hammered finishes on the Megumi and R2 Hammered blades, Yu Kurosaki has found a huge following of chefs, home cooks and knife lovers worldwide. Now he brings another revolutionary look to kitchen cutlery with these amazing looking Fujin knives.
Kurosaki is particularly adept in his treatment of select steels. In the case of the Fujin series he chooses to work with VG-10 and Aogami Super and has done a remarkable job with these alloys. He takes the VG-10 used on this knife to 61 HRC which is about average for the steel. The stainless steel cladding has a damascus finish which looks great and helps protect the inner VG-10 core.
The edge profile is fairly flat with some nice curvature toward the tip. The knife is beautifully thin behind the edge, and as with all of his knives, edge sharpness out of the box is stellar.
These stunning knives are a wonderful addition to his line-up, and we believe they will become some of his most popular.
