The ko bunka is the baby brother of the regular bunka. Ko means small in Japanese. As such it is a very versatile knife that is capable of performing many normal cutting and slicing tasks as well as taking on garnishes and carrying out small in-hand detail work. It boasts the very attractive and useful reverse tanto tip that further enhances its abilities. This fun and functional blade will slice scallions, chop herbs, or bone chickens and small cuts of meat with ease and control. The taller blade height is also perfect for larger hands or those desiring more hand to board clearance.

Master blacksmith Katsushige Anryu has been forging knives for almost 60 years and during this time has built up an almost cult-like following among chefs, knife lovers, and collectors. He makes blades for several lines under the Masakage brand, including these great lookers from the Kumo collection. Kumo translates into Clouds and it is the perfect description for the cloudy looking damascus pattern that is a feature of the line.

The knife is all stainless steel, utilizing VG-10 as the core with a softer stainless alloy employed as the damascus layer. VG-10 is a wonderful knife steel as it can take a very sharp edge and hold that sharpness for a long time. It is also fairly easy to sharpen back to this superior edge. The blade is perfectly matched to a fine rosewood and black pakka wood handle that is comfortable to hold and use for long periods.

There are many reasons that Masakage Kumo knives are among our most popular and long running lines. We welcome you to discover them yourself with this versatile and easy to maintain ko bunka.
