New! JCK Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Knife Series

Some of you may already know this. JapaneseChefsknives is launching a new series of knife called Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan (風林火山). This brand name is made famous by Japanese Daimyo Takeda Shingen (武田信玄). Some of you probably know the phrase from the video games or films

This knife series is handmade with shirogami #1 (white paper) carbon steel hardened to HRC 63 attached on a wa wood handle, and they are beautiful and reasonably priced (not too expensive for shirogami #1 knives). I don't know the exact knife profile just yet. It may not be very thin based on its weight, which can be a good and bad thing. So far the kitchenknifeforum attitude has been positive.

Take a look and enjoy:
