Blade Type

The Bunka knife, a versatile and traditional Japanese kitchen tool, features a distinctive, angular tip and a wide blade. It's designed for precision tasks like slicing, dicing, and chopping. Ideal for handling vegetables, meat, and fish, the Bunka is a multifunctional knife celebrated for its utility and unique aesthetic.

Steel Type

Japanese White Steel #2, a traditional high-carbon steel, is cherished for its purity and fine grain structure, enabling razor-sharp edges, at the cost of being reactive. It is one of the easiest steels to sharpen, but cannot be left wet for even short periods otherwise rust spots can occur. If you’re fastidious in your knife maintenance, this knife can steel can be extremely rewarding to use.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Great knife

I bought this on the strength of having the 210mm Gyuto of the same model and it performs and sharpens just like that. I holds a great edge as well, thin and light.
It has a reactive cladding but after some protein slicing all will be fine and it will take a protective patina.
