Bunkas are essentially nakiris with a sword tip added for some additional versatility. This particular offering from Takeda sports a 50/50 compound grind with an exceptionally tall and thin edge bevel. In this blade, Aogami Super steel is treated to achieve a 62 rating on the Rockwell Hardness scale which allows the knife to retain its ductility, while still being capable of superior edge taking and holding characteristics.
The carbon core of the knife is laminated with kurouchi finished stainless steel to enhance corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance. While smoother and more uniform than the kurouchi finish on Takedaís Classic line, the aesthetic integrity of Takedaís Stainless Clad line remains intact. Takedaís knives have developed somewhat of a cult following amongst knife enthusiasts and are viewed by many as the gold standard for tall Japanese performance cutlery.

    Please know 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.

    Unique shape that outshines it's contemporaries. Takeda doesn't produce average blades and this is another prime example!
