The Fugen line of kitchen knives is made for us by the five-brother team of Yoshimitsu Hamono, located in Nagasaki, Japan. The blades are well put together and offered at a budget-conscious price. Fugens are a perfect entry point into Japanese knives for many users. Line chefs and home cooks should consider this bargain of a blade when looking to make the transition to Japanese kitchen knives.

The inner core is fashioned from Shirogami #1 and is clad, san-mai style, with a soft iron laminate. The covering features a kurouchi finish, which aids in protecting the blade while adding to the great look of the knife. Hitachi White Paper #1 steel is very resilient steel that resists chipping. It is relatively easy to sharpen, and it takes an excellent edge when put to the stones.

With a blade length of about 210mm, these chef knives are a perfect tool for most kitchens, being adept at tackling just about any cutting, chopping, or slicing task. This particular variety has a tall profile for extra finger-to-board clearance. The classic looks of the blade are matched to a very traditional oval handle made from oak wood with a nice Urushi finish that is both attractive and waterproof. This simple gyuto is a perfect entry point into the world of Japanese cutlery.

      Fugenís pretty dece!, August 12, 2021
    Posted By: Winston lacy

    Just received this fugen series 210mm gyuto with the urushi handle. The grind is not perfect, though I think this should be presumed by the price point. The edge out of the box, therefore, leaves something to be desired.
    Having said that, the shape, heat treat and overall comfort of this knife makes it one of the top contenders for any hand forged Japanese knife in this price point. Itís mid weight, tall at the heel and even though it should require some stone work, the white 1 core moves as youíd like it without much fight. Definitely would recommend this knife to anyone entering the world of Japanese blades or to any experienced sharpener willing to put in some elbow grease to double the value of this knife. Thanks as always to CKTG.
