The Karaku Blue #1 bunka kitchen knives are constructed using the highest grade of carbon steel in the industry. Aogami #1 steel is held in high regard by most knife lovers and users. They also sharpen up with relative ease.

The Karaku bunka is the most popular sized knife used in Japan along with the santoku and this one has a nice profile for both rocking and push cutting. The knife is adept at most cutting, slicing, or chopping tasks. It is also small and responsive enough for fine detail work on garnishes and other items. It now comes with an upgraded blue octagonal handle that is stabilized for years of worry-free use.

If you have not tried a Blue #1 knife this could be your time to experience this excellent steel at an affordable price.

    Fantastic performance to price ratio. The weight and edge make for a knife that does the work for you. Guide it over an onion and it glides through with ease. No wedging, despite the thicker blade. Fit and finish isnít the best Iíve had. Considering the price, an acceptable weak point, given how well this knife handles prep tasks. Originally intended to be my ďcheapĒ home knife, it might end up being my main work knife!
