We are very fond of knives with character and this beauty from the blacksmiths at Tsubaki screams character from every angle. The knife looks a bit like a regular bunka but it is in fact better classified as a Hakata bocho. These are essentially bunkas that originated on the southern island of Kyushu. They feature a very pointed triangular tip and an almost totally flat blade. The curved spine is what also differentiates them from their bunka brethren. Hakata knives have tall blades and this one is no exception coming in at about 48mm.

Blacksmith Miyazaki-san hammer forges his blades from Hitachi Blue Paper #2 carbon steel, and adds a fire-forged kurouchi cladding for extra protection. This endows the already cool looks with a very interesting rustic appearance which complements the weapon-like aesthetic perfectly.

It has a fairly thick spine which tapers down a bit towards the tip. The fine extended tip affords the user plenty of opportunity to process the smallest ingredients and prepare intricate garnishes. To add to the great looks, Mr. Miazaki installs a fun oval ho wood handle with a steel ferrule. We love the addition of the branded Kanji and motif. A true character of a knife if ever we saw one!

    I love this knife. Love the aggressive gring and hard steel. Careful of the tip but other than that my favorite knife in my roll.
