Thread: Did I get the correct knife?

    Did I get the correct knife?

    I ordered a carbon Fujiwara Gyuto off of the internet. I received the knife today. It appears as though the labeling is the type that is on the Stainless models. Did I get the stainless model, or did they change their logo.
    The knife I received has the red and black logo that is easily removed. I washed it under water and the red started coming off while I was drying it.

    Thanks for any help..

    Manufacturers do change logos occasionally. A sure way to know is to clean the blade with acetone to remove any protective lacquer that may be on there, and then cut up an onion. If you get discoloration, you've got the carbon (it is very reactive). There will be no reaction at all with the stainless.

    Does it smell? I doubt Fujiwara would change the steel they've been using.

    There is no odor at all. I cut an orange and nothing happened either.

    Sounds like the stainless for sure.

    I think so. Ill contact the website, see If I can exchange it. Or should I just keep the stainless? Anyone have a preference?

    The FKM series is nice. I bought a 210mm for a friend's house warming gift. Mind if I ask why you wanted the carbon steel version?

    It was recommended on this site for me. I have never had a carbon blade. I have a 6" stainless chefs knife and thought a 240 gyuto in carbon would be a nice contrast.

    The easy sharpening for a novice was the reason to choose the carbon, if I recall correctly.
