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.

This beautiful piece is made with SG2 with 62 layer of stainless damascus outside. The blade is sharpened very thin and the taper is beautiful.
