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 Hatsukokoro Inazuma AS - The Hatsukokoro Inazuma (translates as "lightning") AS is a hand-forged masterpiece, made by a talented Blacksmith in Tsubame Sanjo who prefers to remain anonymous. This knife has an Aogami Super core, with softer iron cladding. This combination of steel allows for the blacksmith to create a beautiful finish of folded steel, tsuchime, and kurouchi - honestly feels like it should be too much, but here it is just right.
We've also found these to be some of the thinner knives that we've seen for a while, the edges that are scary sharp. We are thrilled to carry this line from Hatsukokoro who continue to curate an exceptional series of knives.
