Mr. Fujiwara makes the complete knife from start to finish. For the blade, he uses a proprietary #1 Blue high carbon steel made by Hitachi called Chigusa-kou forged laminated between two layers of stainless steel. Chigusa-kou has higher carbon content and added elements. The blade is then hardened to Rockwell 65-66 and attached to an ebony wood handle with bolster and full length tang. Each knife is fully sharpened to a razor edge. Blade length is 8-1/4"; overall length is 13-1/2".
