Teruyasu Fujiwara


Fujiwara Denka Wa Nakiri 165mm

About the ShapeA Nakiri is a vegetable knife. Under utilized in the Western kitchen, the Nakiri’s flat blade is meant for the push/pull chopping of vegetables. Since the entire flat edge of the knife kisses the cutting board at once, you wont be turning the vegetable into an accordion. Accordion vegetables are still connected like a paper doll after you're “done” cutting them. To truly understand the awesomeness of a Nakiri we recommend making onion soup your first night with the knife. The ease of chopping will blow you away.

About Teruyasu Fujiwara: Fujiwara san is a fourth-generation blacksmith, from a lineage that spans 130 years, but he is the first to focus on kitchen knives. Preferring carbon-steel for its sharpness but sympathetic to the customers who maintain it, Fujiwara san and his father invented a method to forge-weld stainless steel over carbon steel back in the 70s. This method is used all over Japan today.
As if forge-welding by hand weren’t enough, Fujiwara also starts with 3-times more steel than other blacksmiths. Although his forging takes longer, he is able to make his knives out-perform other knives of the same steel, purely through his forging technique. Fujiwara san truly is one-of-a-kind.
