    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.

    I am admittedly enchanted by the rustic beauty of Fujiwara knives. I own a Denka Santoku and now a Maboroshi Gyuto. These knives are truly handmade, no two exactly the same. Your knife will be unique in its own way. What is in common with both of my knives is a wicked cutting edge.
    After over 25 years of working in a professional kitchen, the daily routine of cutting meat and vegetables can become monotonous. Working with Fujiwara knives has changed the way I think about kitchen knives. I now take a new delight in my daily routine of cutting and chopping.
    I can also say that I've had and excellent experience with their attentive customer service.

    I had to wait some time before the knife arrived, probably because of the ebony handle I ordered. When it arrived it was packed as a gift. I'm very pleased with this knife. I use it for some time now. It is super sharp and has a beautiful artisan look and feel.

    What can I say other than that this knife is amazing. Functional Art. Great distal taper, great medium weight, amazing edge retention and ease of sharpening. Not super reactive at the edge either. It is an absolute pleasure to work with his knives in a professional kitchen. Dont hesitate to buy something of this level of quality, just do it!

    I've been using my Fujiwara Teruyasu knives for 12 months, they quickly became my favourite knives to use. I can rely on them to stay sharp for a long time.

    I purchased this high quality knife directly from Fujiwara and am very happy. I had a few specific requests and they were handled promptly and professionally over email. The knife is full of charecter and soul and cuts like a dream. The edge retention is tremendous for a White #1 steel. I am a very happy customer.

    Basically good knife, good heat treatment, but very irregular and inconsistent geometry. Thinning with stones requires geological timescales. Cuts well, but not amazing.

    Absolutely fantastic knife. Handle with care, since it's razor-sharp.

    I tried your knife right after it arrived and said to myself, now this is a REAL knife!
    I don't know how to explain this, but the knife seemingly glides through foods; I am so impressed.
    It's perfectly balanced weight seems to enhance the sharpness; I look forward to using this knife for my cooking!

    I wasn't happy with off-the-shelf knives, so I purchased Fujiwara-san's knife. Its edge is much sharper than I expected and I immediately became a fan of your products!
    I was so impressed that on the day after I received my knife, I ordered another one as a gift for my mother!
  • Someppi
    Just as I thought...good things ARE good! Its edge is just like that of a sword.
    This will last a lifetime, and I will use it with good care.
