This little knife is a wolf in baby lamb clothing. Running a scant 120mm blade length, the Fugen White #1 petty is the knife you will reach for whenever you need to pare or process smaller vegetables. At the same time it is a great choice to get into those tight places in a piece of meat or poultry.

It is made with the ever popular Shirogami, or White, #1 steel which has been clad with a soft iron layer. This cladding, also known as jigane, is finished with a traditional rustic kurouchi covering. This entails leaving the carbon on the blade face, which is the result of the heat treating process. The black patina is great looking and aids in resisting rust. Shirogami #1 steel is well liked for its ease of sharpening and the ability to take a really good edge. It will dull slightly faster than a Blue #1 steel, but the price-to-performance trade is well worth it. The blade is ground with an even 50/50 profile.

We have added to this value by using a simple but comfortable ho wood oval handle with black plastic ferrule.

      Good Blade, Poor Handle, August 18, 2020
    Posted By: Tom C

    This knife came very sharp, and after sharpening with a whetstone maintained an excellent edge well.

    However, the handle materials are low quality, with soft wood for the handle and a plastic "bolster" that's just a cap over part of the handle. The plastic cap easily separates from the handle and slides around. Most concerning is that after regular use (~5 months), the blade came out of the handle without having been pulled apart at all.

    For the price, this knife is a good deal even with the cheap handle. However, I would suggest replacing the handle, or looking into a different knife if durability is a priority.

      Great Knife for the money, June 14, 2018
    Posted By: Mike Rivera

    This is another great inexpensive carbon knife. They may not have the fancy finishing and materials of knives costing two to three times as much, but I just love the blades on these budget knives. For normal home use, they're fantastic.
