VG-10, or V-Gold 10, is a modern cocktail of carbon, chromium, cobalt, manganese, molybdenum, silicon, and vanadium. Put together, the relatively small amounts of these metals give VG-10 steel its many important properties, including an ability to hold an edge coupled with great durability. VG-10 is a really popular alloy employed in the making of many top brand Japanese kitchen knives including Shun and Miyabi. It is fully stainless and thus really easy to maintain.

We have this line of VG-10 knives made exclusively for CKTG by the talented blacksmith Tsukahara-San. He tempers the steel to a hardness of 60 HRC and then adds a cladding of stainless damascus using a san-mai construction. The lovely damascus pattern is enhanced by etching the blade after it is forged.

The combination of the tanto-style tip and short, tall blade lend the bunka a very purposeful look. These knives are becoming more popular due to their do-it-all abilities and intriguing looks. They are proficient cutters, slicers, and choppers, while the fine tip allows them to take on smaller ingredients and get into tight spaces.
