Our Japanese traditional-style Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan knives are hand forged and hand sharpened by our team of top-ranking forge-smiths, sharpeners and craftsmen in Sakai City, Osaka. We have confidence that these knives will be well received because of the following advantages:
This knife has a cutting edge of Hitachi Blue No. 2 high carbon steel that has been forge welded with soft iron / steel for increased toughness and ease of re-sharpening. Blue Steel No.2 is a very reliable Japanese high carbon steel that is often used for high-grade Japanese traditional-style knives due to the combination of cutting performance, edge retention and ease of re-sharpening that it offers.
This knife comes with a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle with black water buffalo horn ferrule / bolster, and includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) -with black pakkawood saya pin- for safekeeping.
The Japanese Deba, which is also called the Hon-deba (Literally, “true deba"), is traditionally used to clean and fillet whole fish, but it is also commonly used for breaking down and dressing poultry and other meat with small bones. The significant weight of the Deba is desirable because, with adequate care, the sturdy heel section of the knife can be used to cut or chop through the bones found in small and medium-sized fish and poultry.

Japanese Traditional Style “Wa-Bocho” knives generally come with Single bevel edge for right-handed use (the opposite side of blade is ground flat with slightly concaved shape). The reverse grinding left-handed version is also available at 50% extra of regular price. (Sorry for much extra! Due to a small demand for the left-handed version in Japan, it is costly to run a special small production from the beginning step and production is very very limited.)
It often requires very long delivery time (nearly 90 days). Please contact us first for the availability and delivery time at email.
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.
I am thrilled with this knife!! It is well balanced, and the blade is so well honed that it slices through the bones of the fish with ease and precision. I am new to sushi, although I have been working as a sous chef in other restaurants for several years, using Shun knives. The executive chef here recommended this knife to me, and he could not have given me better advice. What a difference!! In addition to the knife itself, the customer service is also wonderful. I live in Miami, and received my knife in just three days!
I absolutely love my new knife. Excellent quality. Will definitely order from JCK for future needs.
