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.

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 value

This knife is sharp as **** out of the box. Sharper then I have ever gotten my Victorinox knives from either me or a pro on the stone, so sharp that I am slightly scared when I use it (I will happily do knife flips with a Victorinox knife too). I was hesitant about the quality of knife for the price but fear not as it feels much higher quality then the price shows. It feels nice in your hand, a bit heavy for me but well balanced so you don't notice it.

At the price point obviously you will have a few downsides. The handle feels a tiny bit flimsy with the plastic Ferrule and I would of liked to see the spine edge grinded a bit more (it's super minor though, you'll only notice it if your looking for it).

All in all, this is a seriously good deal for a knife, if you are hesitant (which is fair) don't be and just get this knife and you will feel dumb for doubting it. I litteraly cannot wait to use it more and am praying that a 100 onions will need to be cut tomorrow just so I can use it.

Awesome value

Great little knife for the money.
It took a razor edge with no issues at all.
Not quite the same finish on the blades etc that I’m used to but then again it’s also a third the price I’m used to spending on such knives.
Little ripper knife to get you started or in my case for my wife to use without me fretting she’s going to ruin it. 😜

Good introductory piece

I was a bit hesitant to spend hundreds of dollars on a knife, having never owned a carbon steel or forged knife. I’ve been very happy with my purchase and learning how to care and use this knife, looking forward to practicing some sharpening on it too.
