The most remarkable feature is 3 layers structure , the central part of the Fujiwara Teruyasu kitchen knives is made of steelHagane , which is combined with stainless steel from the both sides
Please take a look at real sharpness
Generally kitchen knives are only made of stainless steel.
It is said that stainless steel is strong against rust and easy to maintain, though,itl is so weak that the sharpness will not be continued.
the stainless steel is far from the steel Hagane for seeking sharpness.
On the other hand, the steel Hagane is so hard that it enables the knives to keep on sharpness much longer than any other material.
the Fujiwara Teruyasu kitchen knives , whose remarkable feature is 3 layers structure combined steelHagane with stainless steel from the both sides, are produced one by one with hand elabolately.
The 3 layers realized the both good features; strong against getting rust and long maintaining the sharpness.
