About Fujitora Knives
Fujitora Knives are made by the same company that produces world famous Tojiro knives, but you may not have heard about them because they are made for the Japanese domestic restaurant and professional market and are not generally exported for retail. As such, we feel honored to be able to offer these extraordinary knives to our customers.
Fujitora and Tojiro knives come from a culture long influenced by a feudal society in which the producers of goods in each area presented their best goods to a sovereign of the prefecture. The craftsmanship necessary to produce these goods was passed down from generation to generation with an emphasis on not only making the best but refining the best until it was better than before. The Fujitora factory is located in the Tsubame-Sanjyo area in Niigata prefecture – an area long known for producing cutting tools, from swords to woodworking and knives. The passion to constantly innovate in order to produce the best is alive today at Fujitora, not for presentation to a shogun but to offer consumers the best goods possible. Fujitora Knives reflect the pride, passion and extraordinary craftsmanship of generations from the past into the present.
