Mr. Fujiwara makes the complete knife from start to finish. For the blade, he uses a proprietary #1 white high carbon steel (1.5%) called Izuha-kou forged laminated between two layers of stainless steel. The blade is then hardened to Rockwell 64-65 and attached to an genuine ebony handle with a water buffalo ferrule. Each knife is fully sharpened to a razor edge. Blade length is 7-1/2", and overall length is 13".
