Knife Information

Made in a small factory in Kagoshima, Japan, Fukamizu knives represent excellent value for money whilst using traditional high-carbon Japanese steels. The company was founded in 1915 and carry on making kitchen knives to this day. At the lower end of the price range for handmade knives, the Fukamizu use walnut handles with plastic ferrules, with the grinds being a little thicker than usual. These knives are thus not as fragile as others, and some thinning would result in a knife that punches far above it's price point.

These knives are shipped with a protective lacquer, you may notice a light yellow/brown residue on the blade.

Steel Breakdown

Blue Steel is a traditional, high-carbon steel made by Hitachi Metals in Japan. It is the favourite steel of many knife makers and chefs across the world for it’s fantastic edge holding ability, toughness, and ease of sharpening. It contains few stainless elements, and as such will develop a patina, and develop rust spots if left wet after use. It requires a little more care and maintenance than something like VG-10 (Stainless Steel), so consider this when purchasing a Blue Steel knife as your first Japanese knife.

This knife is great for:

✅ Your first carbon steel Japanese knife

✅ A budget friendly entry into Japanese knives

✅ Those who know about Patina and don't mind a little maintenance

✅ Those who like slightly thicker knives

✅ General purpose cutting (veg, smaller meats etc)

Amazing quality, phenomenal price!

$100 for a knife of this quality is something you cannot pass up! Very nice looking knife, with a remarkably comfortable handle! I’m using it all day in a café, and could not be happier! Comes sharp!!

FUKAMIZU BLUE 2 SANTOKU 150MM

It’s a small prep knife, very sharp and good for the price. Mine had a small chip on the blades edge but was easily removed. It definitely has me wanting more like this
