Kiritsuke Bunka Silver Steel #3 Tsuchime Walnut-Shitan Handle 185mm

/
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.

Sliver No.3 Stainless Steel
Sliver No.3 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is a very fine-grained Stainless Steel that can attain edge sharpness and edge retention comparable to some High Carbon Steels. It has even been used to create corrosion-resistant versions of Japanese traditional single bevel knives. It is very popular with both professionals and home cooks and is generally believed to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG10.

The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.

This knife is a beast in the kitchen. Since I got it I have fallen in love with using it. It makes fast work of all veg and slices fish and meat like a razor.

Speeds up prep time!

Superbly sharp out of the box. I'm just an average cook at home, but this has changed the game for me. It cuts like a dream and I've been able to reduce the amount of time it takes to prepare meals. It is worth every dollar spent.

Beautiful handle

This knife is great value for money. It looks great (I love the color scheme) and feels pretty good as well.

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.
