This 170mm bunka from the Masakage Yuki line is a handy, multipurpose kitchen knife with a unique and interesting profile. The knife is constructed of a Hitachi Shirogami #2 carbon steel core, a steel capable of taking incredibly keen edges, wrapped in an easy to care for stainless steel cladding. The unique profile is accentuated by the refined yet rustic aesthetic and a high quality fit and finish. Like all knives in the Masakge Yuki lineup, this knife is produced by Hiroshi Kato, a master blacksmith with over 50 years of knife making experience. Shirogami #2 is a carbon steel knife and will patina with normal use or corrode if neglected.

I will admit with my limited level of experience the VERY thin tip makes me a bit nervous about it's fragility, but the performance keeps me smiling. It came sharp out of the box, but I decided to put my own edge on it after week or two using a Suehiro Cerax 1000/6000, a strop and compound. It's scary sharp now. Though I've been well pleased with my other purchase from Chef Knives to Go, a 240mm G3 Gyuto, the White
