Rockwell Hardness: 61:63
Handle Material: Octagonal Wa (Japanese) handle, walnut with pakka collar


The Hammer Tone is the premium Fujimoto line, with its striking good looks and sexy shine. The Hammer Tone name comes from the freshly forged look and the X-shaped hammer marks on the carbonized “kurochi” surface. The octagonal walnut handle accents the blade’s look and fits perfectly into any size of hand. This gives the blade an overall light feeling and forward balance.

The core steel is SLD stainless steel, which was originally designed by Hitachi for cutting other steels. It holds an edge as well as a carbon steel but is much easier to care for.

About the Knife Shape Nakiri
A Nakiri knife is a classic Japanese-style knife that has a straight, symmetrical edge that is mostly used for slicing, dicing, and chopping vegetables. Its main feature is its straight blade, which encourages a specific style of cutting. Unlike a Santoku, which utilizes a rocking motion, the Nakiri is ideal for an up-and-down motion, perfect for vegetables. The Nakiri also has a thinner blade, so it should not be used for tougher cuts, like butchering meat or cutting through thick vegetables.
