Bunka knives are one of the few multipurpose traditional Japanese blades, and can be used as a slicer or a vegetable knife. These sword shaped knives feature a straighter and wider edge than a Yanagi for vegetables, and a longer blade than an Usuba for slicing fish with ease. The user need to be more skilled with traditional Japanese knives in order to utilize this unique Bunka style design properly. Traditionally, these knives are used only by head chefs as a symbol of status.

VG-10 Stainless Steel
VG-10 (Takefu Special Steel Co., Ltd.) is one of the most popular and highly regarded Japanese Stainless Steels for making cutlery. It has strong corrosion-resistance and can provide very good edge sharpness and edge retention. VG-10 belongs to a group of steels called "Cobalt Steels”, but it also contains Vanadium, which improves its strength, toughness and edge retention.

Damascus is a laminated steel knife made of several layers of different steel materials. The center of the blade is made of hard steel for sharpness, and both sides are covered with multiple soft steel materials. The multiple steels are metallurgically joined, not by plating or glue. The more the blade is forged, the more complex the ripples become, and the more beautiful the unique grain pattern becomes.

About the handle, the beautiful Buffalo Tsuba (bolster) equipped to the Magnolia Wood handle represent high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally. The handle shape of Japanese-Style Octagonal figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
(*Please be noted that the buffalo tsuba (bolster) is a natural product that may possibly be different from the image in color.)

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.
