Goldilocks zone.

I recently went to the shop in Perth city to purchase between the 160 & 180mm variations of these Bunka. The 180 won me over as it sits perfectly in size for the place I work in and overall visual and physical feel. This knife is my first Vg10 material, and I can definitely say it holds up to some pretty hectic quantities of prep. This knife has already gotten many compliments from many of my colleagues. Definitely a worth buy and am very pleased with this purchase.

Cuts like a dream

Wanted a daily driver, this is it. Length, sharpness, weight, it checks all the boxes.

Wow! Amazing, 43 yrs a Chef using shun for the last 20, this is without doubt the most comfortable knife that I have ever used, light, extremely sharp and just so beautifully finished, I'm a convert.

Outstanding

Out of the box, this thing was RAZOR sharp. A delight to use with prepwork. The perfect Goldilocks size, feels just right, with a great level of control and good length.
