Fujimoto knives are all hand-forged by master craftsmen in the city of Sanjo. Each craftsman 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 Nashiji achieves a great balance in knife making. The Aogami #2 (#2 blue Steel) carbon steel core of the blade has been clad (or wrapped) in stainless steel. You get all of the cutting benefits of the hard carbon steel, but with reduced maintenance.
About the Shape - The Honesuki is a Japanese style boning knife. Originally designed for poultry and small animals like a rabbit. I promise this knife will change the way you think about taking apart a chicken. The Honesuki has a relatively thick spine for scraping meat from bones. Due to the hardness of Japanese steel, you still wouldn’t want to force this knife through bone.
