Bunka knives are gaining in popularity. Their compact length, tall height, and reverse tanto-style tips make them perfect all-arounders in many home and professional kitchens. They are fun to use for many styles of cutting and chopping, and the pointed delicate tips make them great for fine detail work like garnish prep. These knives are tight, fast, and dexterous in use. Plus they look so cool!

The Kanehiro AS Bunka knives are forged by master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. They are made with a core of Aogami Super steel which is then clad with soft stainless steel. This cladding protects most of the knife from adversely reacting with acids or moisture. In fact, they will only oxidize right along the edge, which minimizes the maintenance required by fully carbon steel blades. Knife users love Aogami Super steel because it takes an acute edge and holds it throughout prolonged use. The core steel has a high hardness rate of HRC 62-63. The blade takes on a refined rustic look with the addition of a nashiji (pear skin) treatment to the upper blade surface. The hand chiseled kanji sets the blade off to perfection.

Overall fit and finish are really well achieved. The handle is a traditional hexagonal type using cherry wood for the handle and pakka wood for the ferrule. Please note that the dimensions will vary from knife to knife as these are completely hand made.

    5  Sharp, Sharp and SHARP, July 31, 2017
    Posted By: Don T. - verified customer

    I don't know what to say, bought this after seeing a video of it in action. First of all, it looks sharp, as in visually appealing. It is well done, fit and finish. Second, it is sharp as in the edge OTB was screaming sharp. Third, after a very light honing with some balsa and compound, this thing is SHARP! I mean like crazy sharp. Love it! Plus, as always, almost instant gratification with the fast shipping and excellent service by CKTG.
