This Yamashin White #1 Bunka is an authentic Japanese traditional kitchen knife line features a hammer forged white-paper steel blade (white #1) but is very reasonably priced. These are everyday kitchen knives that many good cooks love to use in Japan. They sharpen really well and hold a nice edge. If you've never tried a good Japanese knife this would be an excellent choice. Care for carbon steel knives is simple. Just wipe them dry after you use them and don't let water or acid linger on the blade. The knife will patina over time adding to the great rustic look of these knives.

      Yamashin White #1 Bunka 180mm, March 31, 2022
    Posted By: Paul J. Frontiero

    First off edge is razor sharp ootb. f&f for this price point is excellent, love the handle too.
    The blade is larger than most bunka knives, sort of a mini kiri cleaver. People will love the extra height to scoop food cuts from board to pot or pan. This is not a show piece, she went right into my kitchen and has been getting a daily workout, very pleased!

    This is a great rustic Bunka for the price. It's taller than a standard Bunka's height and that is the reason that I wanted this one, for scooping cut veggies with. Razer sharp out of the box! The handle is also very nice especially for this price point IMHO.

    Sales and service are always excellent, But not sure if this was a prototype of a design the edge near the choil was really not finished once I had thrown it through a few stones it was fixed and ended up being a real workhorse for the line I can kill an 80 lbs bag of carrots in under 20 mins with the small issue on the edge it became one on my favorites to use

    This knife has a slightly wider blade than other bunkas which is exactly what I was looking for.
    Love the white
