This 170mm bunka from the Masakage Yuki line is a handy, multipurpose kitchen knife with a unique and interesting profile. The knife is constructed of a Hitachi Shirogami #2 carbon steel core, a steel capable of taking incredibly keen edges, wrapped in an easy to care for stainless steel cladding. The unique profile is accentuated by the refined yet rustic aesthetic and a high quality fit and finish. Like all knives in the Masakge Yuki lineup, this knife is produced by Hiroshi Kato, a master blacksmith with over 50 years of knife making experience. Shirogami #2 is a carbon steel knife and will patina with normal use or corrode if neglected.

    This is a fantastic all around knife. After 9 months of near weekly home use it's become the knife I reach for when I simply want one good knife out on my board to do everything.

    Its heel section is flat enough I can chop competently yet its tip is swept enough to allow for a decent rock. Speaking of the tip it's thin enough and extended enough to glide through ingredient and dig eyes out of veggies and fruits... but it is in no way fragile. Despite the reactive reputation of its White 2 core this is a low maintenance --- leave it on the board and forget about it (almost) knife.

    What else: It sharpens incredibly easily and I've gotten some of my best edges on it. Further, the kurouchi finish is attractive and I get decent food release. I also like the fit and finish. No rough edges on choil or spine out of the box, junction of heel to handle is completely sealed. The transition from ferrule to handle is very well done and nearly without a perceptible seam.

    Very happy I picked this knife up and if you're looking for a single knife that can do just about everything and many things very, very well ---- Highly recommended.

    Absolutely one of the best knives I've sharpened freehand and one of the best knives out there. I wish a pic could be posted on this so I could show how good it can get. Hopefully by next month I'll own the 240 Gyuto in the same brand. I see nothing but greatness from this knife, and I have some great knives. This is unusually good.

    5  Great knife, January 28, 2015

    Outstanding knife! Best OOTB edge I have ever seen. Love the weight and balance of this knife. I found the fit and finish to be quite good. This was my first Masakage but definitely not my last. Kudos also to the great service from CKTG!!

    Awesome knife,I've had it for six weeks and it is one of the three that I keep on the line with me during service. This one executes any exacting task with the greatest of ease. Anywhere from cutting down vegetables to slicing through seared proteins. It is everything and then some as described in the Quick Look.

    Incredible blade all around. The handle finish leaves a bit to be desired in a knife at this price point. Overall quite impressed with this one.
