The steel used in these knives is one of the best carbon steels on the market. Aogami Super is known for its ability to take and keep a super sharp edge. It is also very reactive, which is why the kurouchi finish on these knives is so great. It helps with rust protection and aids in food release. You'll still need to be careful to keep these knives dry!

The Karaku Bunka is of average length and height. Although sold as a 165mm the blade comes in at a slightly longer 170mm. It is quite light, weighing in at around 3.8 ounces. These are great all round kitchen knives, featuring a long, flat profile and a sharp tip.

We've upgraded this handle to a nice walnut and maple octagonal. It makes this knife an enticing value.

If you have not tried an AS knife this could be your time to experience this super steel at a truly affordable price.

  • Weight: 3.8 ounces

    5  excellent knife, July 19, 2016
    Posted By: Joshua Harris - verified customer

    I can not express how much I love using this knife. I have only had it for two weeks now but with 6+ hours a day prepping a variety of veggies and meats it flies. I have it a 5 star rating the only complaint (very small) is a tiny fragment of the tip broke off only after the first use, it has been fine since it was just a bummer having a noticeable flaw only after the first hour, The tip came a little bent. but ootb sharpness blew all of my other knives away. The shape is perfect and super light, you can chop so fast you almost look flamboyant.
