The Harukaze White #2 Kurouchi Bunka is a great knife for home cooks and line chefs needing a compact blade that has all the attributes of a knife with a longer edge.

Harukaze means "windy spring" in Japanese. We like the name and image it conjures up! We have Harukaze knives made exclusively for CKTG by a well-regarded factory in Tosa, Japan. We specified a kurouchi finish to these knives for the added protection it affords, as well as the great rustic look that so many people love.

The inner core of White #2 is covered with a layer of soft iron that adds lightness and strength to the blade. It is quite a stout blade for a bunka but it is still light and nimble in hand. These knives are so versatile they can cover almost all needs in the kitchen, from in-hand work to major prep sessions. They come with a lovely oval rosewood and black pakka handle which is perfect for right- and left-handed users.

We are very impressed with the overall fit and finish of these knives given their very keen price. We think you will be too.

      Finally easy to cut tomatoes, June 30, 2019
    Posted By: Get to da choppa - verified customer

    Been big into cooking for years, but this has been one of my first investments into good knives. Sharp enough slicing tomatoes is effortless and makes that nice "clunk" you so desire. Some reviews mentioned how light the knife was, but from my side that has been nice as it feels more like a hand extension.

      One of my favorite knives, March 22, 2019
    Posted By: A. D. Fitzgerald

    I've enjoyed this knife for over a year; it is one of my top three go-to chef's knives. When I opened the box, I was somewhat dismayed by the length of the blade + hilt, but my dismay quickly turned to surprised happiness when I picked the knife up and realized that it is LIGHT! I very much admire this knife's esthetics, but make no mistake, it is a joy to use in the kitchen. A true bargain for the price.

      I might have missed something, March 12, 2019

    Decent amount piece of steel for the price. The handle is well executed. The blade takes and holds a nice edge. The knife I received is not perfectly straight. There is a slight twist. As a result the edge and spine don't exactly line up. It isn't bad enough to negatively affect daily tasks, but it's noticeable if you look closely.

      Great starting knife!, December 26, 2018

    Gives you a rare chance to train on using and caring for real high carbon Japanese knives without breaking the bank. Very, but not crazy, sharp out of the box.

    The knife has a lot of character! Takes a nice edge on my stones and is easy to maintain. Can't beat it for the price on a nice entry level knife.
