Apologies, my friend- I didn't read carefully enough. In the US Fujiwara is well known for bargain-basement blue steel. In my mind I thought you meant the entry level stuff. Obviously they do make a really high end line, which I've not been lucky enough to use. I can't compare the white steel to any other knife as I'm too poor to buy one.
I guess I'd have to just say that if the true competition for the $150 CN is the $700 Fujiwara they must be doing something right!
Wish I could have the white #1 but I'd rather have 4 of the CNs...
