Aogami Super steel is an excellent carbon steel for use in kitchen knife blades. It is a top shelf steel developed by the Hitachi Metals Company. This high carbon alloy has several important elements added to the mix, including tungsten, vanadium, chromium, molybdenum, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and silicon. Because of this, Aogami Super is a steel that can take and hold a very acute edge angle. It is also relatively easy to sharpen as compared to other carbon steels. We are seeing more and more makers add this great alloy to their knife catalogs. Remember carbon steel will rust if left to drip dry so wipe it dry with a dish towel after washing.

This is a classic bunka design. It is a multi-purpose knife, but with a slight vegetable bias. It's basically a santoku with an aggressive tip. It's a tall blade that offers increased finger-to-board clearance, while the shorter length makes it ideal for handling a wide variety of produce and proteins.

This fine bunka is made in Tosa especially for our CKTG customers. Anyone seeking a knife made from the best steel, with a great grind and an affordable price, can stop their search now!

      Supper knife

    This Knife was such a great Purchase I bought it twice, I love a thinly ground knife. This knife is as nimble as a Rabbit. I work in a Professional kitchen where I put my tools through the ringer, and this knife does not disappoint me. I sharpen it once a week and it holds a edge very well. I love the patina that has built up on the core cutting edge and the spine. Also the finish the heal of the blade is polished and rounded. In my professional Opinion(Culinary professional) this is one of the best bang for buck knifes on this web site.
