About the Shape - The Bunka is a bonafide badass, like a kitchen knife in a leather jacket. It is a multi-purpose knife akin to the Santoku. “Bunka” translates to “culture". This multi-purpose kitchen knife is great for dicing, slicing or mincing. Like a santoku, it's a cross between the nakiri and a gyuto, just a little more badass looking.

About Masakage Yuki - This line has been named Yuki (snow) due to the frosty Nashiji finish, paired with the white magnolia handle. The splash of red pakka gives it a feeling of drama, like the final scene of Kill Bill: Volume 1.

Handmade with a hard Shirogami (white) carbon steel and clad in a softer stainless steel, the Yukis are a customer favourite. You get the superior edge retention, easy sharpening and a silky smooth cut of a carbon-steel blade, with only minor maintenance required on the edge of the knife. It’s a genius way to make a knife. Keep the edge dry and you'll be singing.
