A note about measurements: Handmade Japanese knives can vary in their dimensions, so these measurements are only an example.
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 the Blacksmith: Shosui Takeda’s knives kick-ass, simple as that. A third-generation master blacksmith, Takeda-san was born and raised in Niimi, Okayama, Japan. After he graduated from university in Tokyo, he returned to his hometown to succeed his father as a master blacksmith for Takeda Hamono. Since 1985, he has strived to produce the very best hand-forged blades and tools. Each blade is a unique work of art and has a certain presence. Forging knives, axes, hatchets, sickles, and scythes, it seems nothing is out of the question for Takeda-san.
