Kei Kobayashi is a new blacksmith who is making knives for the first time in his career. Up till now hes been working as a sharpener and finisher for a couple of leading blacksmiths, but he recently branched out into forging himself. The Kobayashi SG2 Bunka 170mm is one of the nicest knives of its type that we carry in the CKTG store.

He has chosen to work with SG2 as basis of these first offerings. SG2 is renowned for its super dense grain structure and purity. These attributes make it harder and less brittle than other similar steels. This results in a knife that has the ability to take and retain a very fine edge. It is also incredibly durable. The inner core of SG2 is clad with a softer stainless steel for added protection and to make sharpening easier.

The bunka is a wonderful all-around slicer and dicer that is becoming a first choice blade in many home kitchens. Its tall blade gives the increased finger-to-board clearance while its shorter length makes it ideal for handling a wide variety of produce and proteins.

The knife comes with an unusual seven-sided handle made from dyed lacquer coated pakka wood.

      Great knife, February 10, 2023
    Posted By: Aaron

    This is my second Japanese knife purchase and I've had it a little over a week and I'll have to say I'm really enjoying it. The handle color is darker then the pictures. But I am happy with the fit and finish. Over all very pleased
