The combination of the reverse tanto-style tip and short, tall blade lend the bunka a very purposeful look. These knives have become quite popular recently due to their do-it-all abilities and unusual aesthetics. They are made for cutting, slicing, and chopping most ingredients, while the tip affords them the added ability to take on smaller ingredients and get into tight spaces. Bunka style knives are also a good alternative to a petty for creating garnishes and undertaking detail work of all kinds.

Now take these good looks and turn up the volume to 11 and you have the Takayuki Kurokage VG10 Hammered Teflon Coated Bunka 190mm!

The blade is made from the ever-popular VG10 stainless alloy. This steel is highly regarded for its strength, edge holding, and general ease of maintenance. It is undoubtedly the most popular stainless steel used for Japanese kitchen knife blades. The wizards at Sakai Takayuki then apply a fine tsuchime, or hammered, finish to the blade face and top it off with a smooth Teflon coating. The result is a knife that looks like it belongs in Darth Vaderís knife block! Putting these two methods together results in a food release ability that is among the best we have encountered. Now add in the easy maintenance and sharpening ability of VG10 stainless steel and you have a knife that looks amazing and performs with the best of them, all at a very affordable price.
