FAQ & Information
Categories --> Maker --> Fujiwara, Teruyasu Maboroshi no Meito (Shirogami #1) Traditional Hocho

Swordsmith Teruyasu Fujiwara the fourth has named these knives Maboroshi no Meito, "Visionary Sword Celebrated in Victory" -- a bold claim, but one that is deserved. Fujiwara's knives exceed all expectations of performance and edge holding.
These knives are completely hand forged by a true master. The hard shirogami #1 (white carbon steel) core is laminated to softer stainless steel. This technique results in a knife that has the performance of a carbon steel knife (a keen, long lasting edge and ease of sharpening) without many of the maintenance issues (rusting and oxiation). Because only the carbon steel cutting edge is exposed, the knife is far less likely to rust. The blade is then hardened to Rockwell 64-65 (very hard!).
The blades are are distal tapered for the best possible balance and performance. The hand-hammered surface reduces the likelihood of food sticking to the side of the knife while chopping and slicing.
Traditional Japanese chef's knives differ from European-styled knives in that they are sharpened with a bevel on only one side. The opposite side is slightly hollowed. Because of this, these slicing knives can generally be honed to a sharper edge than can double bevel knives.
The octogon handle is formed from ho wood, a close relative of magnolia. The handle has a front ferrule formed from buffalo horn. Each blade comes razor sharp and is designed for right-handed use.

Fujiwara, Teruyasu Maboroshi no Meito (Shirogami #1)
Fujiwara, Teruyasu Denka no Hotou (Aogami Super)

fujiwaraOver 130 years ago, Teruyasu Fujiwara the first began his career as a master blacksmith, forging farm tools. When his son Fujiwara the second was of age, he was apprenticed to the famous Tokyo swordsmith Masahide Suishinshi. After some years of training, he retuned to his father’s shop and commenced his successful life as a master swordsmith. The family continued this tradition until sword making was restricted after WWII. By the end of the 1960s, the Fujiwara family began making kitchen knives. They were determined to make knives that would make a swordsmith's family proud. To this end, they spent the next ten years developing the steel and techniques necessary to forge-weld stainless steel with high carbon steel and then properly temper the blade. It took all of the knowledge gained by the family from more than 100 years of forging swords to successfully produce their current offering of kitchen knives. Since the late 1990s, Fujiwara the fourth has continued the family tradition.
