Yoshimitsu Hamono are well known for their skill. As one of their main distributors outside Japan, we asked if they could make some affordable, introductory knives for our customers looking to enter the world of Japanese kitchen knives. The Fugen brand is the result of these efforts.

They decided on using White #1 as the core steel due to its ability to take an amazingly sharp edge and its edge holding prowess. This comes at a cost as White #1 is one of the hardest steels to forge, but these master smiths have the necessary years under their collective belts to take on the task with certainty and relative ease. The cladding, made from a soft iron, is left with its carbon face and rustic look which is great at reducing the chances of corrosion. It also allows us to sell these knives at such a budget price point considering the materials and skills required to manipulate them.

The blade is a cross between a cleaver and a bunka which is super fun to use. It can take the place of many of the knives in your kit. Finally, the Urushi lacquer finish makes the handle nearly waterproof for years of reliable service.

    5  Great Replacement Knife for Antique Cleaver, July 25, 2020
    Posted By: Jennifer - verified customer

    I've used an antique Chinese cleaver for 30+ years and sadly it needed to be laid to rest. My brother, a chef, told me about this website and recommended this knife. So far it is a keeper and I can chop vegetable just as fast as I could with my old knife.
