Masakage Koishi AS Ko-Bunka 130mm

About the Masakage Koishi - The tsuchime (hammered) and kurouchi (black) finish give the impression of river pebbles, this is where the name Koishi comes from. The octagonal cherry wood & black pakka handle, the overall balance and feel is what chefs desire and makes it a Culinary Badass. Think Chuck Norris, but if he was a kitchen knife. Aogami Super is the king of knife steel - super easy to sharpen, gets a laser beam edge, cuts like silk and is very rugged for its hardness. It’s called SUPER for a reason. They are then clad in a softer stainless steel to help lower the possibility of rusting. Just brilliant.

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.
