Fujiwara Teruyasu Junior 195mm Gyuto
For those of you who have yearned for a Fujiwara Maboroshi knife and been afraid of the stupidly sharp paper thin edge or haven't wanted to pony up the big bucks, now's your chance (although for a short time only).
The 'Junior' Nashiji are a duet of blades that were discovered in the back of Fujiwara's shed from a few years back. They have been finished in Fujiwara's rustic style sharpened to a 'not so stupidly thin edge' so will suit the majority of users. The Juniors are paired with a more simplistic pakkawood handle.
Fujiwara san is a 4th generation blacksmith with a long lineage of tool, sword and knifemakers. His great grandfather was originally a Meiji period blacksmith forging agricultural tools for farmers in 1870. Fujiwara II was a swordsmith. Fujiwara III was a specialist in traditional single bevel Japanese kitchen knives. Current generation Fujiwara IV is most well known for his mindblowingly sharp Maboroshi No Meito knives.
*(Not to be confused with Fujiwara Kanemasa)
