Fujiwara Kanefusa


Fujiwara Kanefusa FKS Series No.22 Santoku 180mm (7inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


Fujiwara Kanefusa FKS knife is upgraded version of their FKM knives. The blade is made of the same AUS-8 Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel – A popular Japanese stainless steel with good cutting performance, rust resistance and ease of re-sharpening.

Fujiwara FKS knife also features the same comfortable black pakkawood handle and stainless steel bolster, which provides good blade balance and a fine grip.

The unique feature of the FKS knives is the series of circular dimples that are ground in to thee blades. The dimples reduce the contact surface of the blade, which results in better cutting performance and help to prevent food from sticking to the blade. We also think that the dimples give the knife a more distinctive appearance than the FKM knives.

We recommend Fujiwara FKS knife to first-time buyers of Japanese knives because of the reliable quality and affordable price range. Fujiwara FKS knife has good strength, cutting performance and ease of maintenance, which are some of most important features for first-time users of Japanese knives.

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.

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 fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for a long time.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.

  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in 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.

Stellar

I bought this knife as a gift, replacing a kinda crummy santoku for my mom, which had valiantly served for about 20 years. I expected high quality, but I was blown away at the fit and finish. Plus the speedy shipping from Japan, and I expect I'll be dumping too much money into this site in the coming years.

First great kitchen knife!

After doing days of research from online forums, reading metal grades, and cost vs value comparisons, I settled on this Fujiwara santoku. I have really enjoyed the quality of the blade and handle as you can tell the quality is there in the weight and fine tolerances in the handle. I come from years of using a “Genji Amazon set” and this blows it out of the water. The edge is awesome when sharpened and lasts a fair amount of time. Definitely worth every dollar!
