Yoshimitsu Fugen White #1 Bunka 165mm 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.

At 150mm long and 35mm tall, this is a very typical petty sized blade. As such it is able to be used effectively in many tasks including basic small vegetable and herb processing as well as garnish preparations.

The classic looks of the blade are matched to a very nice custom octagonal handle made with stabilized blue 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.
