Fujin translates as the God of Wind in Japanese, and it aptly describes the great looking tsuchime finish that master blade maker Yu Kurosaki has created for his new line of knives.
Master blacksmith Kurosaki is well respected for his abilities in forging and grinding some of the best knives we sell. His profiles, edge geometry, and fit and finish are everything you would wish for in a high end knife. Kurosaki excels in creating knives that are truly athletic in character and perform equally as well cutting hard, dense produce as they do gliding through onions. Much of this is due to how thin his knives get behind the edge and the wonderful convex grind on the blade which becomes nearly imperceptible towards the tip.
The knife featured here is made with VG-10 stainless steel which is hardened to about 61 HRC and then clad with a softer damascus stainless steel. Yu Kurosaki is famous for his tsuchime finishes and the driving rain look of the Fujin is arguably his most unique and finest yet. Now combine this with the lovely damascus on the lower blade road and that beautiful laser engraved kanji, you end up with a knife that is simply stunning!
