This Tanaka Sekiso Damascus Bunka 165mm is a food processing machine. Its medium length blade is big enough for most general cutting tasks in the kitchen and provides smooth, precise cutting action. As with all knives in the Sekiso lineup, the bunka has a core steel forged of Aogami (blue paper #2) steel, and a ductile iron Damascus cladding. The knife is fully reactive, and it will patina over time. Care should be taken to avoid rust by drying the knife after you wash it. Some customers will put a drop of food-safe oil on the blade to help keep it from oxidizing.

These Tanaka bunka knives are real performers because of their fantastic convex grind which allows the blade to slip through food items with ease. Tanaka knives come with a very sharp edge out of the box, and will most likely not need much more than a stropping to achieve a truly wicked sharp edge. Not too thick and not too thin, these knives are solid middleweight contenders and should be strongly considered by any knife aficionado.
