This Bunka knife is a multi-purpose knife akin to the Santoku. Its best used for chopping, dicing and mincing food such as meat, fish and vegetables. The sharp, thin blade combined with the straight cutting edge makes it the ideal tool for executing swift clean cuts in an up-and-down motion or using a tap-chop or a push-cut. It's a cross between the Nakiri and a Gyuto, just a little more badass looking.
This knife may need some additional sharpening out of the box to reach the blade’s potential, but once done, they can get to a very high level of sharpness. Its perfect for someone looking to practice or perfect their sharpening skills. The fit and finish can be a little rough with hammer marks, discoloration or small spots in the steel. If you want a truly hammered looking blade, this is it. This will make a great intro knife for a new chef, budding sharpeners or home cooks looking for their first experience with carbon blades.
Comes with Genuine Leather Sheath
