I'm thinking about buying a Fujiwara Teruyasu Nashiji gyuto from Mark, largely based on the glowing reviews that I see on this forum.
I see that FT makes other lines of knives, the Maboroshi and Denka. They seem to be quite a lot more expensive.

Does anyone have have experiences with these lines of Fujiwara Teruyasu knives? How do they differ from the Nashiji line?

Thanks in advance.

No experience with these other two, but the Maboroshi W#1 with a different finish & the Denka is AS (edited) with a different finish, as well.

The maboroshi and denka remind me of a mini noodle cutter

STEVEO <> Maboroshi and Denka are lines by Teruyasu as the Nashiji series is a line of knives. They are not styles of knives as to say a Gyuto or suji is.

The way the choil is shaped just reminds me of a noodle knife. I'd like to see mark add them to the site. I'd definitely buy the gyuto.

STEVEO <> I hear ya. Bear in mind, the entire line(s) do not all have that style choil... the smaller knives do not.

E.G.,
FUJIWARA MABOROSHI GYUTO 150MM <--link as to FUJIWARA MABOROSHI GYUTO 180MM <--link

FUJIWARA DENKA GYUTO 150MM <--link as to FUJIWARA DENKA GYUTO 180MM <--link

pdx - I have the Moboroshi no melto in 210 gyuto aka Visionary Sword Celebrated in Victory. How can't you love a knife with a name like that? The differences that were explained to me are the carbon content in the W#1 is slightly higher compared to the Nashiji 1.5% vs. 1.2% and of course the hammered finish vs. the pear skin. In all remaining aspects I took it that the two lines are the same. I was under the assumption that the Denka is AS rather than B#1 as stated earlier. I did not ask about this one specifically so I cannot say one way or the other on whether that is accurate or not. Mine is a great knife that feels very sturdy on the board and after several months of home use it's only needed a couple passes on the strops to come back to life.

Denka is his top line comes with a really hard carbon steel clad with stainless steel - has great edge retention (rockwell 65:66) and takes an incredible edge. really expensive knives but if you have the cash go for it.

Maboroshi not as expensive but still pricey - shirogami with stainless clad - again very hard (rockwell 64:65)

all his knives are amazing in my opinion - i would recommend all 3 of his lines - go with what you can afford

check out mr knife fanatic video on youtube on nashiji

Snipes and Chopper, those reviews are really useful to me. Thanks.
Hey, I'd like to chop my onions with a Victory Sword!
