The Yoshimune White #1 Bunka is made by a single blacksmith named Kawamura San in Sanjo Japan. His shop is next to a large number of rice paddies and he's free to make as much noise as he wants. The croaking frogs don't seem to mind. Kawamura San came up with this unique Tsuchime pattern for the cladding by first imprinting the cladding with an attachment to his spring hammer and then polishing it afterward. It's a really well-made knife featuring a unique and attractive stainless steel cladding. We are very excited to be able to offer these fine knives to our customers in the USA.

The White #1 line of knives are constructed with an inner core of Hitachi White Paper #1 carbon steel. This alloy is also known as Shirogami No.1 or Shiroko No.1. It is a hard steel with a very fine granular structure. It has the highest carbon content of all the White steels which results in a blade that is the easiest to sharpen. As it is a carbon steel it will discolor or corrode if not cared for properly.

Bunka knives are basically cool looking santokus that are used for general purpose work in the kitchen. The length and the height are ideal for a wide variety of tasks. It's easy to control and makes short work of most cutting tasks in the kitchen.

The blade is mated to a beautiful custom octagonal handle that our team of woodworkers make to enhance the gorgeous and great performing blade.
