Yahiko is a new in-house brand we have created with three well known knife makers, each responsible for a unique line within this brand. We named the brand after a large mountain outside of Sanjo City that is home to a stunning Shinto shrine located at the base of the mountain.

The Sanjo line is made by a single blacksmith who works in Sanjo City, where else! Like many knife makers he started out making farm tools—in his case, sickles. When the market started slowing for these tools he put his hand to making kitchen knives, and we are glad he did.

Using the skills learned over 30 years he hardens the core steel of White #2 to about 61 HRC. He does this in-house and judges the temperature of the steel purely by its color. He hammer forges an outer cladding of soft iron and gives the cladding a very attractive and unique kurouchi finish. The blade is attached to a great looking burnt chestnut handle with a D-shaped profile.

165mm is the most popular size for a knife in Japanese homes. This bunka can do it all in a compact package. This is a knife capable of tackling pretty much any normal kitchen cutting task.

      Excellent Knife and Service, August 20, 2021
    Posted By: David Bolt

    First purchase from CKTG and I could not be more pleased! So glad I got the last one before it went out of stock. I have been on the hunt for a bunka for a while and this one is just beautiful. Laser out of the box, and knife had no damage due to shipping because of CKTG’s careful packaging. Can’t wait til I can save up for a nice yanagi for my fish prep!

      Great knife, March 19, 2021

    This was my first purchase from CKTG and hasn't been my last. Feels great in my hand and cuts well. It's thicker than I imagined in my head it would be, but it hasn't been an issue. Looking forward to the return of large gatherings where I can cook all day and put this beauty to good use.

      One of my go-to knives, August 1, 2020

    I usually have a hard time deciding if I pick up this knife or a santonku for general purpose use. A very versatile knife and well made. I love the rustic look and burnt buffalo horn handle

      Simply fantastic , May 27, 2020

    Steve is absolutely right a bout this blade... high performance edge out of the box, excellent fit and finish. Cuts like a beautiful dream. Fells like an extension of your arm and soul. Very stiff and confident on the board. If you're not sure about this one, pull the trigger, you'll be glad you did.
