Masakage Kiri VG-10 Bunka 170mm

The Masakage Kiri VG-10 Bunka 170mm is a great little knife with big aspirations! The blade is made by master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato and features a beautiful cladding of stainless damascus steel with a look reminiscent of fog or mist.

The Kiri VG-10 bunka is made using the well liked VG-10 stainless steel and the blade is hardened to about 61-62 HRC. It is ground fairly thin overall and even more so just behind the edge. One of the characteristics of a bunka is the very flat profile and and sharp kiritsuke style tip. This makes it a good choice for those chefs preferring a push cutting technique. The edge is very sharp right out of the box and is ground with a symmetrical 50/50 edge.

The Masakage Kiri is a fully stainless construction, so maintenance is not a huge concern as it would be with a high carbon steel blade. Edge sharpness is fairly easily achieved with this steel, edge retention is another attribute of the V Gold alloy. The looks of the blade are further enhanced by some nicely executed hand engraved kanji and a well made oval magnolia handle and red dyed pakka wood ferrule.
