Yamashin White #1 Funayuki 165mm. This authentic Japanese traditional kitchen knife line features hand-forged double-layer white-paper steel blade (white #1) but is very reasonably priced. These are every day kitchen knives that many good cooks love to use in Japan. They sharpen really well and hold a nice edge. The grinds on these knives for the money are impressive which makes them a great overall value. If you've never tried a good Japanese knife and don't want to spend a ton of money these would be an excellent choice. Care for carbon steel knives is simple. Just wipe them dry after you use them and don't let water or acid linger on the blade. The knife will patina over time adding to the great rustic look of these knives. This knife has a very nice upgraded walnut handle that is light years better than the ho wood ones that came before.

    5  Great all purpose knife and great value., July 18, 2019
    Posted By: StiffArm

    This is one of the first Japanese carbon steel knives I have tried and I absolutely love it. The brief video review states that the lacquer coating also covers the edge but I suspect that was not the case with my knife. Right OOTB the edge could shave arm hair so I was very satisfied with that, although I still worked it a little on a Shapton 5k. I have large hands, most XL gloves are too small, and the height of the blade gives enough knuckle clearance when chopping--close but it's enough. With a pinch grip the knife seems to disappear into my hand and become an extension of my fingers. F&F is pretty good but I will put some epoxy or wax on the ferrule to seal it tighter. The ferrule to handle transition is very smooth. I selected this knife in particular due to its relatively flat profile combined with a nicely tapered tip for detail work. The blade is very stout and not at all thin but is still capable of some delicate slicing, but definitely not a "laser". I was able to get some pretty thin onion slices and it handled carrots with ease but wedged a little. All in all this knife seems like an incredible value and I couldn't be happier with this purchase. I am new to carbon steel and whetstone sharpening so perhaps a more experienced or professional user might find flaws I overlook, but if you are looking to buy your first carbon steel knife and/or get into sharpening then this is a fine candidate.

    3  Nice knife for the $$, July 12, 2016

    I picked this up for my girlfriend and for home use. The knife could use some thinning to bring out more performance, but the stock handle feels really nice and it takes a keen edge with ease. I like the profile, and find the tip far more useful than a santoku. Rather reactive, which I don't mind for home use, and less so than the Tojiros I've used. Worth a look for sure.

    I was looking for a short blade with a point and something I could practice sharpening on without being too worried I would ruin a piece of art. This fitted the bill perfectly. As mentioned in another post, the edge was alright out of the box but introducing it to some whetstones definitely brought out the white #1's edge nicely. There are parts of the spine that is a little rough but it's not in an area my hand would be gripping so it doesn't really bother me. The octagonal walnut hand is really nicely done and a little surprised to find it on such a value for money knife. It works well to balance the knife. It feels light and nimble in the hand and I've been using fillet small fish and general smaller things. I even tried it out on deboning a whole chicken which it managed fine - the tip and short blade gave me enough control to get all the meat off nicely.

    5  A great little knife, October 18, 2015

    What a fantastic little blade this is - small and nimble in the hand yet, broad, robust and versatile. Out of the box finish was pretty good on mine but it's also taken a great edge on being touched up after some work (not that my skills on the stones are that great). Even better is the price - this knife is truly incredible value. And a Mark says on the video - a great knife to learn or practice sharpening. Very very happy with my new acquisition.
