Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan White Steel No.2 Wa Series FW-2 Wa Santoku 180mm (7inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

We have been proud to work with our team of top-ranking craftsman from Sakai, Osaka, who produce our Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan series of knives.

Their work is always impressive, with fine attention to details and excellent fit and finish. 

This basic and classic Japanese Traditional Style knife is made with a core of the very popular, high purity, Hitachi White No2. Japanese high carbon steel, which is sandwiched between two layers of soft iron. The blade is carefully hand ground to create superb cutting geometry and it is beautifully hand polished. Indeed, the overall fit and finish of the knife is excellent.

This knife has a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle, which has a buffalo horn ferrule. For safekeeping, each knife comes with a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin.

The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan White Steel No.2 Wa Series Wa Santoku 180mm (7inch)


This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened  50/50 without problems.  

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times. 


This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    A classical knife for classical people.

    The use of Shirogami #2 and the great handle makes this a wonderful knife for lovers of classical Japanese knives. It cuts wonderfully, the handle is ambidextrous and quite ergonomic. I did have to oil the handle with linseed oil to make it more durable, and that also made it look even prettier. This is going to be one of my favorite knives to chop vegetables with.

    Great knife so far!

    This is my first "nice" knife and so far everything is going well! I wasn't aware of patina build-up so I thought the knife was rusting but it's not. The grip feels REALLY good (for me), and the knife looks great! My product was shipped earlier than I was expecting, thank you for the great service!
