Fujiwara Mabaroshi – Nakiri 165mm


The Fujiwara family started as blade forgers over 130 years ago. Following a long tradition of smithing, Fujiwara-san creates kitchen knives that can only be described as imperfectly perfect. After WWII, the production of swords was severely limited and the family turned to knives for production industries. Teruyasu Fujiwara IV turned to making kitchen knives as a way to regain some of the family’s previous glory.

Current generation Fujiwara IV, full of knowledge that his forefathers left him in forging, heat treating and tempering, knives and swords, created his own line of stainless clad carbon steel knives. His knives are known by culinary enthusiast all over the world.

The rugged look and the feel of the blades are offset by Superior sharpness that will blow any chefs mind.

This knife is made from Shirogami #1 (white carbon) steel clad with stainless steel that eases the maintenance requirements.


Nakiris are double bevel knives designed specifically for working with vegetables. Nakiris are characterized by their flat profiles and squared off tips. This profile makes these knives ideal for push cutting and chopping but awkward for rock cutting. Nakiris are often ground thin to optimize performance and they benefit from a refined cutting edge. A similar design is the traditional single bevel usuba which is also designed specifically for use on vegetables.

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • This knife fully carbon steel, meaning the whole blade can rust. Over time a patina will form protecting the knife. To help prevent this, you can oil your blade with Camellia Oil after use.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
