Kanjo Tsukahara is a small maker in Seki City and he's doing some very nice work. Here is a beautiful example. 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.

Kanjo-san 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. We don't have a saya that fits this knife.

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.

    Very, very nice knife. Keeps a great edge, well balanced and feels good in the hand. Perfect size for 90% of kitchen tasks. Good price, good build quality. I got the extra finishing service, which was worth it, as the knife came screaming sharp. Looks good and performs even better. I'd recommend buying this.

    Love this knife. I've had it for 2 years and have only needed to sharpen once since ordering and requesting the additional sharpening service. Fits great in the hand, good weight, nothing to complain about!

    This knife truly exceeded my expectations. You can see the dedicated craftsmanship in the blade, and the handle is finished perfectly. I have been using this knife non-stop lately and it is a true workhorse! The sharpening service is totally worth the price, and the knife arrived razor blade, scalpel, scary sharp!
