It has been a few years since we last offered Shiro Kamo knives to our customers so we are very pleased to be able to feature these wonderful knives again in our store.

The Kamo SG2 bunka is a lovely kitchen knife that features some stunning damascus work, and fit and finish that are as good as it gets. The very talented blacksmith, Kamo-san, works wonders with R2 stainless steel, turning it into some beautiful pieces of functional art.

SG2 is a perfect steel for kitchen knives as it is easy to maintain and can be hardened to a reasonably high rating, in this case 63 HRC. The outer layer of soft stainless steel is applied in layers and then etched to reveal the lovely semi-matte damascus pattern. Because of this 100% stainless construction, there is no need to be concerned with corrosion or discoloration.

The combination of the reverse tanto-style tip and short, tall blade lend the bunka a very purposeful look. These knives are gaining in popularity recently due to their do-it-all abilities. They are adept at cutting, slicing, and chopping, while the tip affords them the ability to take on smaller ingredients and get into tight spaces.

Two of the outstanding attributes of Shiro Kamo knives are their great grinds and out-of-the-box sharpness. The nicely finished spine and choil are well executed and reflect the care and attention that has been devoted to the making of this fine piece of cutlery. The package is completed with a great-looking wa octagonal handle.
