Satoshi Nakagawa x Naohito Myojin Aoichi Kuro Damascus Bunka 180mm
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 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.
