I have to remember during this time that I am blessed, but I'll admit it's hard watching everyone have fun without me. Enjoy your new knives boys and gals.

I'm glad I was in meetings all day yesterday - if I'd have bought one I would be in big trouble. This year is my CHII year, but I'll get another kono before too long

So whats the difference between the plain jane Fuji and the new FT? Is it primarily the HD2-like grind?

:shock: WOW!
the inventory notification arrived at 14:40. I came in at 14:44 and they were GONE!
Kosuke, you know this already... your knives are hotter than hot buns :lol:
How many were there, anyway?
Thank you for the comment!

We're very happy to hear that.

As far as talking about FT Blue #2, we could provide only 10 blades so far.

Are there going to be more 210mm Fuji FM Blue #2 Gyutos engraved by your father? :D

Does anyone know the HT value for the current W#1 core steel? Kosuke?
You mean HRC, right?

The blacksmith says W#1 (and B#1) should be about 65.

He also said B#2 (and W#2) should be about 64.


I'm so sorry about the very late answer..

As I stated a few posts back- Konosuke IS intending to continue production on the FT Fujiyama


As far as HRC- they are often listed as 61-63, but... Tanaka tends to actually be a bit harder. He’s just such a freak talent, they don’t feel chippy like many would expect at higher HRCs
Thank you for mentioning!

The hardness can be changed depend on the blade, the part of the blade, and the season of the quenching.

That's right.

HD2-like ground and special finish as you can see.

(forged by the same blacksmith)


I'm sorry let you wait for the answer..

VERY impressive. Does the blacksmith use prelaminated bar stock or does he laminate himself in the forge?
Looking forward to picking up my 240 W#1 this evening.

They used to laminate all by themselves but it seems they're using more prelaminated ones recently.

Thank you for the purchase so much :)

Me too. Less and less of our knives are hand engraved. Whenever I can ask for hand engraving I try and get them that way. Lasers and stamps are boring! :)
