Bunkas are essentially nakiris with a sword tip added for some additional versatility. This particular offering from Takeda sports a 50/50 compound grind with an exceptionally tall and thin edge bevel. In this blade, Aogami Super steel is treated to achieve a 62 rating on the Rockwell Hardness scale which allows the knife to retain its ductility, while still being capable of superior edge taking and holding characteristics.
The carbon core of the knife is laminated with kurouchi finished stainless steel to enhance corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance. While smoother and more uniform than the kurouchi finish on Takeda’s Classic line, the aesthetic integrity of Takeda’s Stainless Clad line remains intact. Takeda’s knives have developed somewhat of a cult following amongst knife enthusiasts and are viewed by many as the gold standard for tall Japanese performance cutlery.

    If you are going to compare a Takeda Knife , you compare it to every other knife ever made,
    or wasn't made by Sosui Takeda .

    made by Sosui Takeda .

    One cannot explain in simple words how amazing these knives are. Light as a feather yet hard as a diamond. Easy to sharpen and hold that edge. I waited 6-8 months for it to come back in stock and it was the best purchase I have ever made. Highly suggest everyone gas one of these in their arsenals.

    This knife has completely replaced my blue #2 Santoku and mostly replaced my beautiful Damascus VG10 nakiri. Easy to sharpen and gets super sharp. Like using a giant straight razor to prepare vegetables. I reach for it more than any other knife and I have a rack full of great cutlery. Kind of expensive, but I've spent more on things I used and enjoyed less.

    I want to sell every knife I have and replace them with Takeda's now. When I first received this knife and felt how light it was, I was almost disappointed. But as soon as I started chopping through an onion at the speed of light, my eyes were opened and the blade gods smiled upon me. Stupid thin, stupid light, and a crazy thin edge grind. This is the best knife I will ever have

    Unique shape that outshines it's contemporaries. Takeda doesn't produce average blades and this is another prime example!
