  • Anryu Hamono AS/S Kurouchi Tsuchime Ko-bunka 130mm

    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.

    Aogami Super is the king of knife steel - super easy to sharpen, gets a laser beam edge, cuts like silk and is very rugged for its hardness. It’s called SUPER for a reason. The outer layer is stainless steel, making this knife very easy to maintain.

    About the Maker - Ikeda-san has been learning from Anryu-san since 2007 in the legendary knife-making area known as Takefu Knife Village. In January of 2021, Anryu-san passed the reigns on Anryu-hamono to his nephew Ikeda-san. For years Ikeda-san has been forging the majority of Anryu knives, and we are excited to see how he drives the company forward into the future.

    Ikeda-san uses a coke fire, as his master Anryu-san has trained him, and he loves to make Damascus steel-style blades. It’s a fun way for blacksmiths to show off their talents.
