Fujiwara Kanefusa craftsman is ready to make suitable edge geometry for left handed version by hand sharpening process at 10% extra of the regular price. Please allow 2 to 3 business days for left handed version to deliver.
For your information, most of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.
However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.
We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for a long time.

Been wanting to get a slicer for long time now and saw this fujiwara kanefusa super sharp out of the box! Satisfied with the performance on this knife!
Sharpens relatively easily and offers good cutting performance at an excellent value. Great budget and starter knife! Pretty durable too.
Amazing knife series, I bought one for my boss too!!! Japanesechefsknives.com is the go to for most Japanese knives because they are priced well, usually have sayas, and then the customer service is beyond awesome, they really do want you to experience excellence!
After using this suji at home for about a year on a weekly basis to carve steaks and pot roasts, I can say that it's a great value and gets the job done.
Nothing "basic" about this knife. I now have several FKMs and they are great quality!
