The Tsubaki Blue #2 Bunka 210mm is the longest knife in the trio of Bunka knives made by young blacksmith, Mr. Miyazaki. Working out of his small shop in Nagasaki he hammer forges a very small line of specialized blades using Blue #2 carbon steel. This is undoubtedly one of the most popular carbon steels used for kitchen knives with a list of enviable characteristics including great edge retention and durability. It is the same basic steel as White #2 but with added chromium and tungsten.

While it might look like a regular bunka, these are more correctly named Hakata bocho knives. This is a regional variation of a bunka bocho which features a triangular pointed tip and a curved spine. The blade height of this particular example is a tallish 52mm which allows for increased board clearance. The blade edge is quite flat, favoring push-style cutting techniques. Even though it is a fairly long knife, the pointed tanto-style tip adds the ability to process smaller foods and make intricate cuts in small items and garnishes.

The knife is finished with a really attractive fire-forged kurouchi cladding and is coupled to a traditional ho wood oval handle featuring some fun looking fire branded motifs.
