Teruyasu Fujiwara 藤原照康
Master Teruyasu Fujiwara is the fourth generation blacksmith of the Fujiwara family, with a history of sword-forging since 1870. After the Second World War, the production of swords was limited, so Mr. Fujiwara decided to adopt his traditional blade forging techniques from the early-Meiji era into making modern kitchen knives. It is Mr. Fujiwara’s motto to make practical and extremely durable knives that can last decades. His knives are, in his own words, “expected to be passed down from father to son, and mother to daughter”.
