The five brothers that run Yoshimitsu Hamono are well known for their skills, especially in the making of knives from Tamahagane Steel. This process is the most traditional way of steel making using a Tatara and smelting from sand iron collected from a river. As one of their main distributors, 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 nakiri擁t features the thin grinds and square profile of this supreme vegetable cutter with a really tall blade height reminiscent of a Chinese cleaver. So while it resembles a cleaver, it is more of a nakiri in terms of grinds and profile.
