Collection: Fujiwara Nashiji

 

The Fujiwara family roots can be traced back 140 years to traditional Japanese sword making. Since sword making is strictly done for art purposes these days, us cooks in the industry, as well as home cooking knife enthusiasts have benefited BIG TIME. Teruyasu Fujiwara IV is a legend in the knife community who has turned to forging kitchen cutlery as a way of keeping tradition alive.

Years ago when people said you can not forge stainless steel to carbon steel, this man and his father set out to prove otherwise. Thus the technique of stainless cladding around a carbon core was born.

His Nashiji line of knives are a very awesome, and affordable way to experience his craftsmanship. Nashiji is the word the Japanese use to describe the skin of a pear. This is also used to describe the cladding of these knives...rustic, and simply beautiful. Shirogami #2 is the steel at the core of the knife. Easy to sharpen and extremely fun to use, white carbon requires a very deft hand when forging.
