The Bunka is a general purpose knife with a really cool shape. This 210mm version is the perfect size to be used as a gyuto/chef knife for most tasks in the kitchen.

Shosui Takeda specializes in hand forging blades from the highest quality Aogami Super Steel (AS), which is high in carbon and has added Vanadium for strength and durability. Each blade holds its edge extraordinarily well and resharpens easily.

The blades are marked with ďASĒ and Takedaís signature. They are forged entirely by hand, as has been practiced for three generations. The blade measurements are rough aproximations since Shosui does these by eye without a template. The blade of the bunka is made thin for amazing slicing ability.

Following this lengthy process another artisan member of the Takeda team completes the knife with a natural rosewood handle featuring a custom contoured octagonal pattern and ebony ferrule. The nakago, or tang, is then sealed with a natural waterproof resin.

This unusual and useful knife will appeal to anyone who values true handmade tools steeped in a rich history of craftsmanship.

  • Weight: 5.4 ounces
  • Length on edge: 210-215mm
  • Spine Thickness at Heel: 3mm
  • Blade Height: 56.5mm

    Please note that all measurements are approximations! Takeda-san and his helpers make each of these knives by hand, without a template. As a result, every knife is unique and the stats will vary.

    If you're here, then you already know. What you may be deciding is how this knife is going to fit within my work day. I am fortunate enough to be able to have an 18"x24" board on my line station, which also happens to be where I do all of my prep. This 210 Bunka is thee perfect size, length AND height with a nice shallow gentle curve for the rocking technique. Not to mention the tip can execute quite a bit of precision in the delicate, hard to reach areas. It has become my daily workhorse. It's my second Takeda, my first being the nakiri, which lacked the distance for some product, but otherwise still gets used a great deal. Overall, this has to be my 12th knife from these guys and I have yet to look anywhere else. Top Flight Service.
