Yu Kurosaki is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding talents in Japanese knife-making right now. This young blacksmith is setting standards and creating trends in an industry that is founded on tradition. His creations span such a wide variety of techniques, finishes, materials, and styles that it is hard to comprehend.

His unique hammered finishes are garnering widespread attention in the knife world, and the Senko line just adds to that allure. As with all of his creations, this knife is way more than looks. Kurosaki-san makes his blades with an eye toward performance. One look at the choil shots shows the sublime grinds that make the Senko a king of speed and agility.

The Senko Bunka is made from SG2 powdered metallurgical stainless steel. SG2 stainless steel possesses high edge retention while being moderately wear-resistant and easy to sharpen. The core steel is clad with softer stainless steel to protect and add strength to the blade. Then comes the finish! And in true Yu Kurosaki form, it is a stunner. The flashing sparkles of light that are created by his design give the blade its unique identity.

The bunka is a great all-around knife that is well-proportioned and weighted for most average users in the home. A beautiful custom Western-style handle completes this compelling package.
