Japanese Petty Knife (Paring Knife)

This is a beautiful knife, the rough forged pattern on one side looks to me like a river running along the edge of a forest. I was surprised how great this knife feels in the hand so balanced and so sharp. Practical handmade beauty.

This is a great knife with a traditional wabi-sabi aesthetic of subtle irregularity that reveals its making. Perfectly balanced and super sharp it is a pleasure to use every day. The Maboroshi is also a very practical knife of carbon steal blade wrapped in a stainless steal. I have a few Japanese knives but I love my Maboroshi and Nashiji best because of simple natural beauty and they way they feel in my hand when I cut.

Japanese Nakiri Knife (Vegetable-cutting Knife)

Knife is forged/ground extremely thin from the primary bevel resulting in high performance. The knife is around 53 mm tall, 2.5mm spine thickness at the heal, and around 160mm along the cutting edge. I asked for a finger rest and it is very comfortable in a pinch grip. The steel (white#1 HRC 65) is some of the best available on the market. OOB needs a finish sharpening as micro chips can occur out of the box because of the high heat treat and acute bevel that is applied. It just needs a few passes on a higher grit stone(2000-8000) and the micro chipping issues are gone. Overall, great performer with the ability to handle heavy vegetable prep to detail work in a professional setting. The stainless Nashiji finish is very durable, low maintenance, aesthetically pleasing, low friction, releases food with ease, and full of character. I would not hesitate to order again because customer service is great and Mr Fujiwara is simply one of the best blacksmiths out there!!! Thank you very much!!!

Handle has great feel in the hand. Pronounced taper from the buffalo horn bolster to the heal of the handle resulting in great comfort. Only a slight bump at the magnolia wood to horn junction. Tang is friction fit with no visible adhesive (no epoxy or glue) so you might consider sealing the tang with some kind of adhesive such as bees wax, epoxy, clear glue, to make sure the seal betweeen handle and tang are waterproof to protect against water damage. Overall, nice handle with great fit and finish. Medium size handle at around 2.5 inches in circumference...It is 28$ USD to upgrade from a western handle or magnolia wood d shaped with plastic bolster and it is worth every penny. I would recommend upgrading to this handle if possible.

Friction fit saya that does the job of protecting the blade and looks great. I upgraded my handle to an octagonal magnolia with buffalo horn ferrule and the saya matches the handle very well. Definetly worth the extra 15$ USD

Japanese Santoku Knife (All-purpose utility Knife)

Absolutely the best knife in my kitchen. The ergonomics are excellent for chopping or slicing, the steel maintains its edge and requires little honing and the handle is as beautiful as the craftsmanship of the blade.
