Konosuke ' YM Fujiyama' 300mm yanagiba. Shirogami #2 carbon steel and iron blade. Octagon ho (magnolia) wood handle with ebony wood ferrule. Comes with wood saya cover.
Slightly different than the original Fujiyama knives, which became difficult to get, the new Fujiyama YM series is done by new craftspeople but is still done with excellent quality forging, grinding and superb finish work. They are hand forged by the son of Tanaka-san, the original Fujiyama smith, in Sakai city, Japan. His work is excellent. They are ground by a sharpener who has been working in Sakai for decades and has started working with Konosuke on these new Fujiyama series.
Konosuke, a Sakai-based company, works with top skilled blacksmiths from all over Japan to create unique, top quality kitchen cutlery. Konosuke’s knives spare no attention to detail, from the heat treatment and grinds to the packaging. Their focus is on knives forged in their hometown of Sakai City, where the Kawamura family and parent company Kaneshige has operated for many generations, but have also started to work with smiths from Sanjo as well. We are always happy to stock a new batch of gyuto’s from Konosuke!
