The Fugen line of kitchen knives are made for us by the five-brother team of Yoshimitsu Hamono, located in Nagasaki, Japan. The knives are really well put together and offered at a budget conscious price. Fugens are a perfect entry point into Japanese knives for many users. Line chefs and home cooks should consider this bargain of a blade when looking to make the transition to Japanese kitchen knives.

The inner core is fashioned from Shirogami #1 and is clad, san-mai style, with a soft iron laminate. The covering features a kurouchi finish which aids in protecting the blade while adding to the great look of the knife. Hitachi White Paper #1 steel is a very resilient steel that resists chipping. It is relatively easy to sharpen and it takes a really fine edge when put to the stones.

With a blade length of about 210mm, these chef knives are a perfect tool for most kitchens, being adept at tackling just about any cutting, chopping, or slicing task. This particular variety has a tall profile for extra finger-to-board clearance. The classic looks of the blade are matched to a very traditional magnolia octagonal handle with blond/marbled buffalo horn ferrule. This simple gyuto is a perfect entry point into the world of Japanese cutlery.

      Deserves rehandling!, October 15, 2019
    Posted By: Mark Kirkwood

    I've had all my Fugens re-handled with octagonal cherry + black pakka wood ferule. The difference in clean appearance and pleasantness to use is simply stunning. It is probably worth getting one of the customs advertised on this site if you don't have a tame knife smith on hand.

    Note that the knife smith did moan a bit about the smoothness of the tang(s) making re-handling difficult, so we had to have a discussion about it being ok to sand/grind them as required to make it work. The final result was very good. Funny, he also offered a sharpening and thinning service...until he did a test cut with the gyuto and announced that the edge was 'very good' and thinning 'was in no way required'. The blades on these knives are good!
