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 knives can be your special cooking partner for a long time.



This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition. 

  • 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, 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.

Great Knife!

This was the first time buying an expensive knife that didn’t come in a set. I highly recommend it! It cuts like butter! I’ll definitely purchase my next one here too.

Fantastic knife, amazing customer service and prompt shipping

Knives received extremely quickly to the UK from Japan. Brilliant customer service with communication between ordering and receiving the items. Ordered both the Fujiwara FKM Santoku and Petty. Amazing fit and finish, slice like butter and balance is perfect. Makes prep-work a breeze, great entry-point into Japanese knives. AUS-8 steel means that they’re a bit more forgiving than high carbon steel, but still do a fantastic job. Could be sharper OOTB but a quick strop helped immensely. Have not had them long enough to need to sharpen so cannot tell how reactive they are on a stone. 70/30 grind, so hopefully they’re ok to sharpen - I have only sharpened 50/50 bevels before, so time will tell if sharpening is difficult or not. Overall - highly recommended! Would not hesitate to order again from JCK.
