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.

Sorry. This knife is not available for left handed version.

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.

He loves it!

I bought this knife just before Christmas for my son-in-law as a gift. He’s not only a good chef, but he’s also half Japanese! He always complimented my knives that I’ve used for years. My usual source, Japan Woodworker, was no longer in business so after a lengthy internet search I took a look at JapaneseChefKnife com. I found a knife I liked, figured it would never make it to here by Christmas, but ordered it anyway. To my surprise, it arrived the day before Christmas, well boxed and ready to wrap up then under the tree! He loves it! Beautiful knife, good prices and excellent service! I look forward to filling out his set from Japanese Chef Knife!

Incredibly sharp , well balanced and light

I bought this knife twice as I loved it but dad chipped the first one as he managed to hit a staple with it while trying to open a box with it which I advised him not to do. The quality of the knife is amazing for the price , although I always fully dried the knife after every use , it shows some signs of discolouration along the edge which didn’t have any remedy or way to prevent in the help sheet that came with it .

Wonderful knife, great value

Good knife, at this price point fit and finish is not perfect but that's too be expected. Otherwise knife functions perfectly, super light, great balance and the steel can get real sharp.
