About the Shape - The Bunka is a bonafide badass, like a kitchen knife in a leather jacket. It is a multi-purpose knife akin to the Santoku. “Bunka” translates to “culture". This multi-purpose kitchen knife is great for dicing, slicing or mincing. Like a santoku, it's a cross between the nakiri and a gyuto, just a little more badass looking.

About Masashi Shiroshu - Masashi-san makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade, working entirely by himself hand-forging, sharpening, and putting on the handles. He’s also a bit of a risk taker, forging knives in his flip-flops and lighting cigarettes off white-hot knife steel. Bad. Ass. This shiny, sexy damascus blade combines extreme good-looks with ruggedness and ease of maintenance. SLD stainless steel gets razor sharp, but doesn't rust like carbon steel.
