Fujimoto knives are all hand-forged by master craftsmen in the city of Sanjo. Each craftsmen has a specific skill, so they knives are made in a more practical production environment. This means that Fujimoto knives are some of the most technically consistent, reliable and affordable hand-crafted blades that you can buy. They have all of the benefits and romance of a hand-crafted knife, with the perfection of someone who has been mastering a single skillset for years, if not decades.
The Fujimoto Hammer Tone is the best of both worlds; mostly stainless, but it cuts like carbon steel. SLD steel is semi stainless, meaning you basically have to try to make it rust. This makes it perfect for fast-paced professional kitchen work, or a home kitchen that is full of distractions.
The blade has a rustic look with a rough texture that releases food easily. The Fujimoto Nashiji are popular with chefs who need the best knife for the dollar and home cooks who want something traditional, yet affordable. The oval handle is made of burnt chestnut wood with a plastic collar. This gives the blade an over-all light feel and forward balance.
