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 No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.
C 1.05- 1.15 % | Cr 0.2-0.5 % | W 1.0-1.5 %

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.

The edge is the carbon steel which is examined good carbon steel, forged and clad stainless. Since the side is stainless steel, it is hard to rust and it is sanitary.

Kiritsuke Bunka Stainless Clad Blue steel #2 Kurouchi Rosewood Handle 180mm

Received this Japanese knife with a Japanese KING KW-65 whetstone knife sharpener and a spray bottle of High Level Tsubaki Oil 100ml (Camellia Oil). Everything was well packed. The Bunka feels so light and well-balanced, and the rosewood handle is so smooth and well-fitted in hand. It's a pleasure to use the Bunka : the blade is sharp and cuts easily; preparing vegetables and meat becomes easier. I am very happy with the service and the knife ordered at Musashi.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
