Had a couple of inquiries for international shipping but for the time being this is a US only sale, recently had a knife rejected by the airline for shipping via USPS express to Australia with no explanation.

Not sure if this is Myojin or Morihiro, it was bought from Tosho circa 2016/2017.
Per Konosuke’s site I think it’s safe to assume it’s Morihiro since the knife was made prior to 2018

“An integral part of the very beginnings of Konosuke as a company, Morihiro served as the sole sharpener of the Fujiyama line of knives until 2018. His now-iconic Wide-Bevel design is one of the most sought after pieces in Konosuke's history, while his hamaguri-style sharpening is potentially some of the best in all of Japan.”

With a timeline of 2016/2017, the possibility of it being Myojin is still there. While they didn't officially announce Myojin until much later, he came into the fold with Konosuke a couple years ahead of the FM release. Its something I know I need to append to my Fujiyama History article; it was something I wasn't able to dig up through conversations with Kosuke and Myojin directly until sometime in 2019.


Something I'd recommend, though, for ANY Konosuke knife that people would like details on- buyers or sellers -always feel Encouraged to reach out to Kosuke directly by Email for details on knives. He keeps pretty decent records on almost all knives that come through. [which, with Fujiyama, isn't too difficult.. as there aren't a lot of them post-2015].

He can coordinate with his own records and with Tosho directly to help establish the provenance of the knife.

You know, I almost reached out to you about this knife… but yes I suppose that’s true. Kosuke would probably know better than anyone.

haha I mean, you can always feel encouraged to reach out to me too.

But that's partly it- I'd hate to look at a knife, make an assessment, and then have someone reach out to Kosuke and hear something different. If I'm not confident, I'll say so. But I can also just be incorrect.

Whether its Morihiro or Myojin though, it's going to be a great knife. In the samples I have to compare, Myojin actually gets knives a little thinner behind the edge.. at least more consistently. And Tanaka's blue super is always excellent. SO hard.

I understand the desire from a collecting standpoint for a more definitive answer though.

Based on the choil shot it looks like a Myojin grind.
