In the south of Japan, these are called hakatas and they're basically bunka knives. Either way, they are versatile and agile knives capable of tackling all sorts of cutting, chopping, and slicing jobs around the kitchen. They feature a flatter profile than some other chef-style blades and are particularly suited to push cutting techniques rather than rocking styles. The delicate sword tip makes them very useful for small or intricate work like preparing garnishes.

Mr. Tanaka hammer-forged this blade from Ginsan stainless steel. It is very good at taking and holding a sharp edge and sharpens more easily than many other stainless steels. A softer damascus cladding is applied to protect and strengthen this hard edge steel and is finished with a near mirror polish and hand engraved by Mr. Tanaka himself.

A traditional octagonal shaped handle makes the package complete and gives the knife a great look. *The Santoku A saya is the best fit.

    I have another Matsubara knife, and already liked the blacksmith's work. With this piece, my opinion of his work is even higher! The knife is nicer looking in person than in the pictures, and I love the hakata profile. This thing is an absolute stunner of a knife.
