The Yusaku Blue #2 Nashiji Bunka 165mm is crafted by Kousuke Muneishi, a 3rd generation blade maker from Tosa, who recently began making kitchen cutlery to expand his family's business. His grandfather started the Muneishi Cutlery Mfg company in 1955 to produce farming and forestry tools, and his father continues making specialized cutting tools using mainly Aogami #2 steel.

The bunka is made using Blue #2 steel laminated with stainless steel, applying the san-mai method with a nashiji finish. The blade is thin and has a nice profile, showcasing Kousuke's impressive blade-making skills. The knife is named Yusaku, meaning the work of Kousuke, and reflects the branding on the blade.
