There can be little doubt that the Saji Rainbow Damascus line of kitchen knives are among the most beautifully designed and realized knives on the market. The unique pattern is obtained by using layers made from rust-resistant stainless steel, brass, and copper. This damascus is applied to a core of Hitachi Blue paper #2 steel in the san-mai style. The blade is attached to a finely crafted stainless steel bolster and the handle secured to the hidden tang with two stainless rivets and a lovely mosaic pin. This knife is pure art.
But it is also a cutting champ in all regards. Saji knows how to make a knife perform as well as look. This knife has a wonderful thin grind behind the edge which translates to an amazing cutting ability. It has a deft feel and tall blade which endow the knife with a great deal of versatility.
Many western chefs and home cooks look to the bunka as their go-to blade for many general cutting tasks. We think the Saji Rainbow Damascus Bunka is a beautiful melding of form and function.
