We have been slowly adding new items to our line-up of Misuzu knives over the past year and this new bunka represents a slight departure from the norm with the use of VG-10 steel as the core element. While the steel is a change, the basic shape and design are similar to the SKS93 bunka that has become a popular blade with many of our new customers.

The iconic reverse tanto-style tip and short, tall blade result in a knife with a very purposeful look. Not surprisingly, this style of knife is getting more popular, given their do-it-all abilities. Bunkas are suitable for cutting, slicing, and chopping, while the tip affords them the ability to take on smaller ingredients or get into tight spaces. Many chefs use them as an alternative to a petty for garnish and detail work of all kinds.

The step up to VG-10 steel takes this great little knife into a higher place compared to its sibling, especially as regards edge stability, ease of sharpening, and stain resistance. As with the other knives in the line, the profile and grinds are similarly well-executed. It has a really nice thin spine that tapers down to the very fine tip. Along with the steel, it also boasts an upgraded urushi octagonal handle

      Fun knife and worthwhile , August 10, 2020
    Posted By: Colby

    The knife is light and decently sharp out of the box. It's small belly and pointed tip make precision cuts smoothly. If you are a chef looking For a smaller knife to keep on the line this is a great option. If you want a inexpensive great little miniature (work)horse, this is a great buy. This knife works best with pull cuts but is versatile. Don't plan on using it to rock and chop. This knife is like a stock Mazda Miata, it's fast, tiny and fun but you can't take the family to the beach with it. I have been a chef and chef instructor for years and I know a fun knife when I see one.

      First knife , April 30, 2020
    Posted By: Levi Z

    This was the first ever Japanese knife I bought. I have bought others since. I absolutely adore the performance of this knife. For VG 10 it takes the best edge of any of my other VG 10 knives. The lightweight and thin blade make cutting veggies as if you're cutting air. The handle is a little wonky but the amazing razor sharp edge makes you forgive any handle quality issue. Love this knife and so does my wife.
