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.
