Over the past couple of years we have built up a wonderful relationship with the Daovua knife company from Vietnam. We discovered them back in 2017 and since then we have been working with them to improve their products while beefing up the line to become an all-encompassing range of kitchen cutlery.

Now we are pleased to add a completely different line of knives that are being sold under the Pipeline banner. As the name suggest, these blades are fashioned with steel reclaimed from old pipelines. Our friends from Vietnam tell us that it is better quality steel than the leaf spring steel they've been using.

The bunka that is featured here is a rather unusual design in that the spine has a very pronounced recurve to it that is even more radiused than the edge. This is in stark contrast to most banno bunkas that have virtually straight spines. The rest of the knife looks like pure Daovua: very simple and rustic. These new Pipelines do feature an upgraded ergonomically shaped handle. **Because of this shape, the CKTG Bunka saya does not fit the Pipeline Bunka. It does, however, fit the Leaf Spring Bunka.

These knives are made with a love that no machine can impart and it shows in the way they feel and perform. They have soul! And we think you will smile every time you use this fun and unusual cutter.

    Bought it because of the blade geometry: it's nothing short of brilliant. The knife itself is as rustic as they get, the blade being all bumpy from the hammer blows and the grind being uneven. That said, it is solid, and after an hour with a file and some sandpaper it was "hand-finished" as well.
    In practice, it takes on a good edge, keeps it for a while, and works as the closest thing to "one knife to do it all" in the family kitchen. I wouldn't take it to work, or when cooking for a client, but at home it is real fun to use,
    The bottom line is, there are far worse ways to spend $50.
