Bunka is a general purpose kitchen knife as Santoku and it used to be just as popular as the Santoku, but has become less commonplace in recent years. With its wider blade, the Bunka knife is suitable for cutting vegetables, while the triangle-shaped tip area is particularly useful when cutting fish and meats.

Aogami-Super Carbon Steel | Blue Super Steel
Aogami-Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the greatest Japanese Carbon Steels. In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium and Tungsten than Blue Steel No.1, it also includes Molybdenum. It has very good edge sharpness and excellent edge retention, but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle. Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the very best High Carbon Steels in the world.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

We received the knife about a month ago. The service was fast, and the knife is just awesome. SHARP! Beautiful steel and craftsmanship. So far seems to hold the edge perfectly, and no rust (We wipe it dry after each use; also bought good quality sharpening stone to maintain it). Highly recommended.

Product features

Handmade Forging

By applying the traditional forging method, the molecules of iron, which is the material, are finely arranged, leading to the completion of a "live kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for molding is repeated three or four times, and before carbon is released from the steel and the original power is not lost, it is quickly shaped into a blade and creates durability.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important for achieving the best sharpness. Produces uncompromising sharpness that can be sharpened at our own factory with blades.

Handle

We place the highest priority on a shape that is durable, luxurious, easy to grip, and does not get tired even after long-term use.
