Masakage Kumo Ko-Bunka 130mm

About the Shape - The Ko-Bunka is a smaller version of a Bunka. Any guesses on what “Ko” means in Japanese? You nailed it! It translates to “small.” This little knife is awesome because it still gives you knuckle clearance on the cutting board. Making sure you can mince garlic and comfortably chop veggies. A badass love child of the Bunka and Petty knife, it works for smaller jobs in the hand or as an all-purpose blade.

About Masakage Kumo -Sexy or what? Dubbed Kumo (cloud), these dreamy looking blades could be compared to watching the clouds on the coolest of days. The blades are hand-forged with VG-10 stainless steel wrapped with alternating damascus layers of stainless steel and nickel, teamed up with an octagon cherry wood and pakka handle. They have a nice light feel and forward balance. Heavenly!
