    Thanks for filling in the blanks on the Fujiyama's. I have a 210 B#2 Gyuto from the 2016 vintage, a 210 W#2 Petty from the 2017 vintage and recently a 240 B#2 FT. I appreciate knowing more about the history of these great knives.

    Do you have any information on the current availability of the FT vs the FM line of Fujiyama's? I picked up a FT B#2 240 a recently and would like to get the same Gyuto knife in 210 if the sharpener is still working with Konosuke.

    FM sharpener is still in the fold and doing excellent work for Konosuke.

    The FT sharpener is no longer actively doing work for them though. There MIGHT be a couple that have been finished, but not release.. but I don't know.

    The FT Fujiyama seems really lightweight but for removing skins from salmon and trimming silver skin the knife is an absolute gem. I find myself reaching for it most days and wonder how much different the sharpening is on the FM? I guess I'll just have to buy one next time they become available.

    It’s slightly off topic but I’ve been on the hunt for a Tanaka B#1. Can anyone give their opinions on the knives I’m looking at. The ones I’ve been seeing are the Fujiyama, Tanaka x Kyuzo from Hitohira and the Tanaka Dammy from JNS.

    At least from what I’ve seen from pics and specs, they’re all wide bevels and fairly lasery. But anyone used these knives?

    Kosuke has indicated that he is making 270mm and 300mm Fujiyama Sujihiki's - there a knife I've been looking for for quite a while. My 210mm Kono Fyjiyama W#2 Petty is used as a short slicing knife right now.
