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)
- This knife has a core of carbon steel that may rust is left exposed to moisture.
- The handle is set in true Fujiwara style - rough as, and are sold as is. One of the reasons for the cheap price is the handle is very basic. Plus the handle fitting is far from perfect ... not exactly gap free, but such good value for a Fujiwara that you will forget about these imperfections.
Note: For those after a faultless smooth, polished fit and finish Fujiwara knives are not for you ... Theses knives are rough n' ready, handmade tools and as we say "imperfectly perfect."
