Bunka Silver Steel #3 Nashiji Zelkova Handle 170mm

H099

Regular price¥25,800
/

All-purpose knife featured with a diagonally cut-off shape, praised around the world as a sophisticated traditional Japanese design. Best for detailed work and hollowing out, using the edge of the blade. Often used for chopping vegetables and slicing Sashimi.

Gingami 3 is categorized to stainless steel for its 13-14.5% Chromium blending ratio. Although it’s a corrosion-resistant stainless steel, actual feel of cutting is closer to the high-end carbon steel, The edge is not slippy but significantly grabbing object fibers.

Another reason why professional chef selects Gingami 3 is a good affinity to whetstones at hand re-sharpening. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening. Neo-Classic Nashiji finish gives irresistible appeal to the series as well. The combination with the soft stainless SUS405 outer layer provides further easiness to the blade sharpening.

The Japanese term “Nashiji” (English: Pear skin pattern) refers to the result of a technique that appears to leave the surface finish of a blade looking unfinished and rustic.

Favorite knife in the kitchen

One of the best size knife in our compartment. I'm cutting for last 30 years different stuff, different knives,but the japanese musashihamono knives are made for life with care and love. You understand after first cuts that the knife is the way it should be made, handy, sharp for longer time because of the quality steel and the hard job done before they reach us the clients. I really appreciate the sole they invest in their art knives. Have bought 5 japanese knives and no doubt they are my favorite. Recommended to 7 families and they are also delighted with them.

This is a beautiful knife.

This is a beautiful knife. The steel is fantastic and stays sharp for a long time. I only wish the blade was a tiny bit wider to make it easier to scoop up things . This is a beautiful knife.

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.
