CKTG Bunka Saya
The original allure of the bunka is attributable to the shape. That reverse tanto tip and short but tall blade give the knife an original yet purposeful look. But once you get past the visual qualities of the blade, it becomes apparent that this is a knife possessing considerable capabilities. The relatively tall blade makes for good hand to board clearance, while the fairly 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.

This is yet another great blade from the forge of one of our favorite knife makers, Yu Kurosaki. Not only does he make blades for renowned brands like Masakage, but his own named brand has flourished into a powerhouse in its own right. This line is his homage to the classic kurouchi finish.

He fashions these blades from one of our favorite steels, Aogami Super. AS is a fantastic alloy for making many different types of knives and blades. This high carbon alloy has several additional elements, including tungsten, vanadium, chromium, molybdenum, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and silicon. These additives endow the steel with an ability to take a very acute edge angle and hold that edge better than many other popular carbon steels. It also scores highly in the easy-to-sharpen category. Add to the mix a fine kurouchi finish and you have a knife that looks as good as it performs and is as easy to maintain as any carbon knife out there.

      Perfect Knife

    I have a 9.5" Gyuto. This is a perfect partner. Great weight, balance and length. Floats through onions, etc. Fantastic quality and steel. Sharpening service is highly recommended as well!

    Fantastic little knife, big enough to do most home tasks, sharp like no other knife i have owned. Keeps its edge really nicely. after getting past the initial stages of owning a carbon knife, its performance and style really are second to none!

    This knife is awesome. The blade is wicked sharp, and will blast through anything you throw at it. The tip is so thin it hard to describe, and to be honest it chipped off fairly soon after I got the knife. But a quick fix on the stone and it was good as new. STILL 5 STARS.... extremely great knife.
