Kohetsu Shinano Blue #2 Bunka 170mm. This line is made using the ever popular Blue #2 steel. This is by far one of the most loved steels in the world of Japanese knives. It is a high carbon steel that is known for its superior edge retention and its ability to take a more acute edge than White steels. The core steel is hardened to 62 HRC. An outer layer of stainless steel is applied san-mai style to protect and strengthen the Blue #2 inner core. It also makes daily maintenance a lot easier. San-mai translates to “three flat things” and it refers to the construction technique used in the manufacture of the blade where two layers of a softer steel are used to encase the central core or “hagane.” The core steel is exposed at the blade edge and also in the spine when viewed from above.

The blades have a great looking matte finish which contrasts beautifully with the hamon-look line, where the hagane is exposed at the edge bevel. It has a symmetrical 50/50 grind which is particularly well executed. This knife comes with a sweet custom handle made by our woodworker that features stabilized burl wood that will last and look great for years to come.
