Yoshimitsu Fugen White #1 Bunka 170mm Urushi. 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 cost 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 green urushi finished 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.

      First one I bought, and a go-to, March 14, 2021
    Posted By: PAUL DAMATO

    I admit that I am a beginner, and that is why I have hesitated to write a review (what right do I have to evaluate these things?). But I can say 1. That this one has really been fun to learn to sharpen on stones; that it is a very good all purpose knife that I have used for onions, garlic, veggies, and also meat. Unpretentious, nice balance, and easy to get sharp.
