Fukamizu Hamono Bunka-bocho 165mm Aogami #1
As one of the largest knife makers in Kyushu Fukamizu Hamono operates at a different scale to the solo smith. At the same time their employees are experienced, dedicated craftsmen utilizing great materials, untroubled by the sales, marketing and management requirements faced by the artisan-slash-small business owner working alone.
Fukamizu Hamono has the full setup - sales showroom with dedicated sales staff servicing an extensive network of retail outlets, well-staffed back office, extensive plant and equipment. Efficiencies abound and that's how we can deliver their knives to customers with free worldwide shipping at these prices.
Their bunka is a solid, quality all rounder aimed at home users. Great for lovers of vegetables and perfectly at home portioning proteins. Some makers give their knives a full and final sharpening but that's not the case here - out of the box the sharpness is practical enough but that sharpness could be more surprising. You'll certainly be able to surprise yourself once you've sharpened it up properly.
