Here's a chance to get a sweet custom knife that's hand made and uses excellent steel for a great price. This knife is perfect for processing vegetables. It features a rectangle-shaped blade with a square tip. The profile is flat or almost flat. This geometry makes it an idea choice for push cutting and chopping but not so good for rocking styles. The blades are customarily ground quite thin to avoid wedging or sticking in dense or hard vegetables.

The Fugen White #1 Nakiri is a classic nakiri in shape and grind. The blade length is about average for these knives, at 165mm. The height is similarly scaled at 47mm. It has a nice 50/50 symmetrical grind which, after a quick trip to the stones, provides a very sharp cutting edge.

Fugen knives feature inner cores of Hitachi White #1 steel which is encased in a soft iron cladding. The outer layer is left with its carbon coating to protect the knife from corrosion and provide a surface with better food release. Of course, the knife is not stainless steel and does require care with drying between uses.

The Fugen is a really well put together knife which is offered at a budget-conscious price. It is a perfect entry point into Japanese knives in general or nakiris in particular. Line chefs and home cooks should consider this bargain of a blade when looking to take this step into a new style of kitchen knife.
