  • Satoshi Nakagawa x Naohito Myojin Aoichi Damascus Bunka 180mm

    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  Nakagawa Hamono - Satoshi Nakagawa-san learnt all his skills from the famous Kenichi Shiraki of Shiraki Hamono. When Shiraki-san retired in 2020, the torch was passed down to Nakagawa-san. This relatively young but very talented blacksmith can forge various different type of steel including traditional carbon steels like Shirogami or Aogami, but also stainless steels like VG10 and Ginsan. He is also capable of forging Honyaki blade, which requires great amount of skill.
