The Shibata san Kotetsu R2 Ko-Bunka is a surgical tool that's made for the kitchen. With its incredible light weight and amazing edge retention, nothing quite feels the same.
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.
