Fujiwara san Nashiji Gyuto,
Hand forged blade with extremely hard Japanese Shirogami # 1 White steel core. This knife is completely forged by hand by Teruyasu Fujiwara and is unique in its kind, the blade has a particularly matt appearance. The blade is thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings, which makes sharpening very easy. A Gyuto (literally "cow knife") is suitable for all jobs. The knife is designed to cut fish, meat and vegetables but is mainly intended for meat and fish. The handle is made of the traditional Honoki wood (Japanese Magnolia wood). A special feature is that the handle remains stiff when it gets damp. The handle is octagonal and is therefore suitable for left and right handed use.
The Fujiwara family is an old and well-known Samurai family, 140 years ago the family started making swords and knives. Fujiwara Teruyasu san is the 4th generation and is known worldwide for its excellent knives and is considered one of the best knife makers both in Japan and abroad.
