About the Shape - The Bunka looks like a bonafide badass. It is a multi purpose knife akin to the Santoku. “Bunka” translates to “culture.” A cross between the Nakiri and Gyuto, Bunkas can do it all. It’s the best of both worlds with the volume cranked to 11.
About Masakage Kiri - Masakage’s Kiri (mist) line are hand-forged from VG-10, a high carbon, stainless steel created for knife making and then laminated with 49-layer Damascus. Truly useable art! Paired with an oval handle made of white magnolia and red pakka, the balance and overall feel is something that a serious cook craves.
VG-10 is steel designed to make knives; it brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. You’ll never see your food discolour or have to pick up a rusty knife.
