The new Fugen line of kitchen knives are made for us by Yoshimitsu, whose blacksmith shop is located in Nagasaki, Japan. These knives are designed and made for home and professional chefs who, while on a budget, have a need for a good level of performance and durability.

We specified White #1 steel as the core for several reasons. It is a very resilient steel that resists chipping. It is relatively easy to sharpen and it takes a really fine edge when put to the stones. It is a great choice when balancing performance and budget. The inner core of White #1 is covered, san-mai style, with a soft iron cladding. The covering features a kurouchi finish which aids in protecting the blade while adding to the classic look of the knife.

This santoku is a small size at 170mm and can be used for all kinds of processing and preparations. It is sharpened with a 50/50 bevel. The blade height is a generous 48.4mm, which is quite tall in relation to the length. For those with small hands or a limited cutting area, this is a wonderful balance.

The knife comes with a simple very nice oak octagonal handle with burnt urushi finiish that is a big upgrade over the old one.
