Fujiwara 210mm gyuto knife. Aogami super carbon steel with hammer marked stainless cladding.

Fujiwara-San's Denka No Hoto series are forged with aogami (blue paper) super steel at the core. They have a hammer-marked (tsuchime) stainless cladding with kurouchi finish. They take an incredibly fine edge for blue steel, hold incredible sharpness and are easy to bring back with the proper stones. These knives are hardened to 65-66 HRC, which makes for long edge life, but does not tolerate mistreatment. Since they're forged with a wide, kireba primary bevel, they allow for easy thinning down the road.

Teruyasu Fujiwara is the 4th successor of a 140 year old family sword making business. Fujiwara knives are made with western or Japanese handles in stainless clad carbon steels of exceptionally high carbon and hardness. Skilled hand-forging and heat treatments make for amazing edge life without being difficult to sharpen.  Their exceptional hardness, however, demand good knife skills, chips will occur with mistreatment.

Aogami is a reactive carbon steel.  It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the core is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
