The Takeda NAS Bunka is part of the Stainless Clad collection that features a core of AS steel covered with a layer of softer stainless steel. The cladding is done in the san-mai style, in which the outer layer is applied to either side of the blade but not over the spine. The san-mai name refers to the Japanese translation meaning three flat things. Constructing the knife this way offers the practical and visible advantage of a superb cutting edge with a corrosion resistant exterior. Keeping the exposed portion of the non-stainless edge and spine of the blade clean and dry after each use is still a required practice.

Bunka knives excel in delicate vegetable cutting and chopping tasks. Like all Takeda knives, this is an oversized blade as compared to the average. It is a tall 58mm in height at the heel and is 180mm in length.

We are making these knives available with some exceptional custom handles made by our favorite woodworkers. We will change the picture and specifications to reflect the latest available package.
