Yoshimitsu Fugen White #1 Bunka 170mm Custom. The Fugen line of knives are made for us by Yoshimitsu Hamono, a small blacksmith shop run by 5 brothers and located in Nagasaki, Japan. We have tasked them with producing a well-made and designed line of knives that can compete with many other brands, but at a much lower price point.

By utilizing Hitachi White Paper #1 steel and a soft iron cladding, they are able to manufacture a fine blade that is capable of pleasing both home cooks and line and sous chefs in a professional environment, all at an entry-level price. The iron cladding is finished with a kurouchi covering which reduces manufacturing costs while providing additional protection to the blade.

The classic looks of the blade are matched to a very nice custom octagonal handle made with stabilized burl wood. The Fugen White #1 bunka represents a wonderful entry point into the world of Japanese cutlery by being both easy to maintain, quick to sharpen, and robust in use.
