5.0 star rating 4 Reviews

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. 

About the Shape: This is also a multi purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. Santoku means 'Three Virtues' or 'To solve Three Problems'. The virtues or problems are slicing, dicing and mincing. Santoku is usually found in 160mm - 190mm lengths. These are more and more popular in Western kitchens due to the unique shape and smaller easy to handle size.
