Kengata means “sword-like” in Japanese and the term can be applied to most knives that have the distinctive reverse tanto tip. Knives like the one featured here very much resemble a gyuto with a tanto tip and are also known as bunkas. The reverse tanto tip is the most obvious design element of the bunka blade. This intriguing and cool-looking tip is a way to get extra edge length to the blade while keeping over all mass down. Aside from general cutting and chopping duties it is also a perfect tool for processing smaller items and performing intricate cuts with the tip. Since this knife has a fairly flat profile, it is most adept at push cutting and chopping rather than rock chopping. It is more gyuto than classic bunka due to its lower blade height and longer edge length.

The blade is made with a core of VG-10 stainless steel which is clad with a layer of damascus stainless steel in the san-mai style. The strong outer layer is given a hammer finish which contrasts beautifully with the damascus layer on the lower blade road.

The great looks of the blade are complemented by a subtle and understated traditional octagonal handle made from maple and red pakka wood.
