Yosimitu Bunka Kurouchi Carbon Steel 190mm

Bunka knife from Yosimitu Kajiya.

Bunka is a multipurpose knife widely used in Japan  ( and worldwide these days ).

These knives are hybrid between European style chef knives and Japanese Nakiri with acute angled tip for delicate work.

This light weight knife has a sleek outline with thin blade profile and relatively small handle makes it a perfect knife if you like a compact feel in your hand.

The core White 2 steel ( Shiro #2 ) is a Japanese high carbon steel with a great sharpness, clad with soft iron to gain shock resistance and the octagonal Walnut handle sits very comfortably in your hand.

Yosimitu Kajiya is a local blacksmith from Nagasaki Japan and the blade smith Ide san forges amazing kitchen knives using traditional methods.
Each knife is hand-sharpened at here prior to dispatch for superior sharpness out of box and free shipping Aus-wide.

Please note that knives made from high carbon steel can rust if not maintained properly.
These knives are not designed to cut frozen food, bones or extremely hard / fibrous ingredients like hard cheese rind, Lemongrass or Galangal.  
These are handcrafted knives and the size, colour or look may differ from knife to knife.
