Kohetsu is our in-house brand of Japanese kitchen knives. We have eight different lines under this brand comprised of various steel and construction techniques. The SLD line is made up of the usual shapes and sizes with an eye towards ease of maintenance, quality of materials and low impact on your pocket book!

The Kohetsu SLD Bunka is a fun and functional kitchen knife boasting great performance, a lovely aesthetic, and fine fit and finish. We start with a core of SLD tool steel which is hardened to 61-62 Rockwell. The hagane (inner core) is then covered with a layer of a soft fully stainless steel cladding. This enhances both the strength of the core and ease of maintenance. The inner core of SLD is a semi stainless steel and is regarded as a great alloy for both taking and holding a very keen edge.

The outer core, or jigane, is given a really unique lattice work hammer finish before it receives a final high shine polish. The result is a knife of great visual appeal.

Bunka knives are gaining in popularity in the west due to their compact dimensions and versatility. The relatively tall blade makes for good hand to board clearance. The flat profile is perfect for vegetable prep, especially for push cutters.The pointed tanto style tip is great for detail work and getting into tight places. It looks cool too!

    3  bunkers for Bunka, October 21, 2019
    Posted By: Knifeneophyte - verified customer

    It was with great pain that I returned the Kohetsu SLD Bunka, it was simply not for me. Without knowing it I gravitate towards lasers, thin and light blades. The Kohetsu is on the opposite side of the spectrum. It is undeniably beautiful and rugged but in a heavy and hefty way. I adored the bog oak handle and intend to order a custom knife just to have the privilege of beholding this beautiful and mysterious wood once again. It should be said that the Kohetsu was my first Japanese knife purchase ever, so this was my learning curve. I opted for the Shibata Kotetsu and have never looked back. I truly enjoy browsing the CKTG website and look forward to a bog oak custom beauty. So please restock your Bunka collection with bog oak. Knifeneophyte over and out.
