Yu Kurosaki makes some of our most popular knives. His various lines of kitchen knives have become staff and customer favorites due to their versatility and efficiency working through soft, hard, dense, and loose ingredients alike.

In the case of the Megumi series Kurosaki-san has chosen to work with VG-10 and has done a remarkable job with this steel. He takes the core steel to 63 HRC which is on the upper end of the hardness scale for this alloy. For all this hardness the knives remain incredibly easy to sharpen. The VG-10 inner core has a damascus stainless cladding with a very attractive hammer finish.

He does one of the better convex grinds we have seen, and in conjunction with the hammer finish, this provides exceptional ingredient separation and release. Add to this the super easy maintenance requirement s and you have knife that can find use in professional and home kitchens alike.

This great looking bunka is a versatile blade that is quite short in length and tall in height. This creates a knife with very broad uses and appeal. It can be used to replace a short gyuto or santoku especially when the user favors push cutting and chopping techniques. Of course the great looking reverse tanto profile also offers a compelling aesthetic appeal. The traditional octagonal handle is made from cherry wood with a buffalo horn ferrule.
