The Fujiwara family started as blade forgers over 130 years ago. After WWII, the production of swords was severely limited and the family turned to knives and scissors for production industries. Teruyasu Fujiwara IV turned to make kitchen knives as a way to regain some of the family’s previous glory.
The knives Fujiwara-san makes are the real darlings of Knifewear. Many blacksmiths buy pre-laminated blanks and make blades with a carbon steel core and laminate it with stainless steel for lower maintenance, well this guy does that process in house. He is definitely a man with a few tricks up his sleeve.
