Our Japanese traditional-style Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan knives are hand forged and hand sharpened by our team of top-ranking forge-smiths, sharpeners and craftsmen in Sakai City, Osaka. We have confidence that these knives will be well received because of the following advantages:
This knife has a cutting edge of Hitachi Blue No. 2 high carbon steel that has been forge welded with soft iron / steel for increased toughness and ease of re-sharpening. Blue Steel No.2 is a very reliable Japanese high carbon steel that is often used for high-grade Japanese traditional-style knives due to the combination of cutting performance, edge retention and ease of re-sharpening that it offers.
This knife comes with a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle with black water buffalo horn ferrule / bolster, and includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) -with black pakkawood saya pin- for safekeeping.
The Kirisuke Yanagiba has a very similar blade profile to the ‘regular’ Yanagiba, but it has what is commonly known as a 'reverse tanto' tip, or ‘clipped point’, which is very useful for precision cutting. Apart from this difference, the Kirisuke Yanagiba functions in the same way as the ‘plain' Yanagiba or the Takohiki.

Japanese Traditional Style “Wa-Bocho” knives generally come with Single bevel edge for right handed use (the opposite side of blade is ground flat with slightly concaved shape). The reverse grinding left handed version is also available at 50% extra of regular price. (Sorry for much extra! Due to a small demand for the left handed version in Japan, it is costly to run a special small production from the beginning step). We try to keep the left handed versions in stock, but once sold out, it may take 60 to 90 days for delivery. Please contact us first for the availability at email.
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.

FuRinKaZan Hon Kasumi Series Blue Steel No.2 Kiritsuke Yanagiba 300mm is a good knife, very sharp, takes a little time to sharpen with a whetstone, it's very easy to get. Left-handed knives may take a little longer to hit the knives. But it's worth the wait. I really like this knife This knife is very sharp. And the use makes it beautiful to cut fish. Easy to work with. I like it. Importantly, it takes a long time for my left handed knife to be made to order. which is different from normal right-handed people But you take care of customers like me very well. care and take care of hair Thank you for introducing me to the Furinkazan hon knife. I like both the beauty and the sharpness of this brand of knives.
