Fujiwara Kanefusa

Fujiwara Kanefusa FKJ Series FKB-2 Kurouchi Wa Santoku 165mm (6.4inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

The Fujiwara Kanefusa Kurouchi Nakiri knife has unique “Black Forged” (Kurouchi) blade. The blade core is made from Hitachi White Steel No.2, which is sandwiched with soft iron.

The black-colored Kurouchi finish, which covers the upper soft iron part of the blade, is a special traditional coating that produces a unique luster and improved corrosion-resistance. However, while Kurouchi knives require less maintenance than typical carbon steel knives, please remember that the White Steel No.2 blade core and the soft iron portion of the bevel can still discolor or rust easily.

The knife comes with the popular “D-Shaped” traditional-style handle, which is made from magnolia wood and a water buffalo horn ferrule.

 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.

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



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 a 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 a 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.

Excellent Quality

Thus far, my experience has been greater than with any other knife i've purchased. The quality is outstanding, and the blade holds an edge like no other. Though the color looks more black in the image, I could not hold it against this knife.

My new favorite knife

I love this knife. The size is perfect, it cuts beautifully out if the box and even after moderate use since my purchase it still cuts like it just came out of the box. The kurouchi finish is also beautiful in person.

Beautiful and great value knife

I bought this for a friend's birthday present and they are extremely impressed with it. The knife feels very high quality, is very very sharp and elegant too. Good value for money for entry level chefs. The service and delivery was also great too - it arrived very quickly on the other side of the world, no hassle.
