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 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 a 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.
