Banno bunkas are really versatile kitchen knives which find favor in many home and professional kitchens around the world. Their very unique shape gives them an air of mystery and tradition. This is a blade shape that takes on all kinds of ingredients and tasks with consummate ease. While looking like a traditional bunka, the Tsubaki Blue #2 bunka is more accurately called a Hakata bocho. The main difference between the two is in the length of the pointed nose and the curved spine. These unique knives originated on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan.

Tsubaki knives are made in a small shop in Nagasaki run by the young blacksmith, Mr. Miyazaki. While young in years he has great experience in the art of blade making, first working in the famous Yoshimitsu workshop and then under the tutelage of master blacksmith Ooba-San from Hakata. It is this last apprenticeship that inspired Miyazaki-San to specialize in the Hakata style knives we feature here.

This is the shortest of the three knives we offer from him and it is a real beauty in hand and in function. Very traditional looks coupled with a fascinating fire forged kurouchi finish endow the knife with a purposeful air and efficient and easy to use functionality. It is a blade of many talents: great for regular push cutting and chopping and very adept at tackling finer ingredients and cutting tasks. We think you will enjoy this unique and fun looking knife.
