Nimble and light like the wind that Fūjin is the god of, the santoku is a perfect all rounder used in many kitchens around the world. This knife performs every bit as exceptionally as it looks and Kurosaki's work on this range is rightfully popular and in high demand.

First Impressions

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.


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 SG2 steel down to the cutting edge really do make the Fūjin every bit a piece of high performance art.

In Hand

Well balanced and relatively lightweight the Fūjin is typically paired with a tradtional wa handle made from either ebony and white buffalo horn or rosewood and sometimes limited edition yo handles in a variety of materials.


The SG2 core steel clad in stainless is already very sharp out of the box and edge retention and durability of the steel is top notch.

Ease of Care

Very easy to care for, SG2 is stainless, durable and retains an edge well so follow our normal care guide and perhaps consider storing your knife on one of our magnetic racks when not in use.

Our Verdict

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.

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

Our aim is to measure and photograph our products as accurately as possible but due to many items being handmade, finished or using natural materials, there can be minor variance in measurements and things such as blade or wood finishes can vary. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.

Some measurements such as HRC are provided by manufacturers and should therefore be used as a guide.

We recommend a santoku sized blade guard to protect this knife if you're not going to show it off it on a magnetic rack or block.
