The Takeda Classic Banno Bunka looks like it means business. It is a multi purpose knife somewhat like a santoku. “Bunka” means “culture” in Japanese . It is Takeda’s most popular knife in Japan amongst home cooks. This great looking knife appears and behaves like a hybridization of the Nakiri and Gyuto. Bunkas can pretty well do it all. It really is the best of both worlds with the result being greater than the sum of the parts! These knives use Hitachi Aogami Super Steel as their core with a softer carbon steel cladding. They have a great feeling traditional rosewood Wa handle. All Takeda knives have 50/50 edges and with the octagonal handles they are good for either right handed or left handed users. Spine thickness at the heel is approximately 2.5mm and it weighs about 4.6oz but each one varies a little since they're totally hand made. Edge length varies too but most of them seem to be around 170mm give or take 10mm. If you're interested in the Walnut saya please use the drop down box next to the order button to choose it. You can view the saya on the Siglinda saya page. If you are seeking a do-it-all knife that lives outside of the “normal” box this extraordinary tool should be on your short list.

** If you are buying a saya: The specifications of Takeda knives can vary so we prefer to fit the saya to the knife at the time you purchase the knife. We may need to make the saya to fit the knife. This will delay shipping 7-10 days. We will contact you if this is necessary.
