Yu Kurosaki Fūjin Gyuto 210mm Purchase options

The mid sized gyuto is a perfect knife for day to day use in every kitchen and this is a wonderful example of Kurosaki san's excellent craftmanship and design and would be a prized asset in any kitchen. 

Performance

Out of the box, the quality of the finish on the cutting edge is immediately apparent and the Fūjin is right up there with the very best knives for out of the box sharpness and Kurosaki san has once again created something special with this range.

Beauty

It's hard to avoid using too many superlatives when describing Yu Kurosaki knives so we won't. These are astonishingly beautiful knives, the hammer finish designed to invoke feelings of motion from the wind of the God Fūjin combined with the subtle exposed tapering of the core VG10 steel down to the cutting edge really do make the Fūjin every bit a piece of high performance art.

Comfort

Well balanced and relatively lightweight the knife is paired with a tradtional octagonal wa handle in walnut. It's a joy to use. 

Durability

The VG10 core steel clad in stainless is already very sharp out of the box and edge retention will be good.

Ease of care

As a stainless knife there's not much to do other than follow the normal care rules of rinse/dry/store and avoid bones and frozen food. 

We think a knife this stunning definitely needs to be stored on a nice rack or block though, you need to show it off even when you're not using it!

Value for money

Given the outstanding sharpness, the design, fit and finish and Yu Kurosaki's experience and skill as a master blacksmith the Fūjin range is great value for money and much like his other ranges you're getting a great deal of skill and quality for your money.

Kurosaki's work is in high demand for good reason.
