A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
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 Nigara Hamono - Nigara Hamono is a relatively new knifemaker out of Aomori prefecture, but they are not new as a company. The company has been around for over 350 years, tracing back to its swordsmith ancestors. Knifemaking is a small part of what they do; they also produce large steel beams and such for buildings!
The Aogami Super Tsuchime series is a great option for those looking for a knife that has a laser-like edge, and the wicked performance of carbon steel. Nigara Hamono has also developed a special tsuchime pattern for the knife line that makes it unique in the kitchen.
