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 magnolia handles with plastic ferrules, with a factory machine finish, meaning that you will need your own whetstone to put on a final edge for use.

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.
