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.
About Shizu Gen -Shizu Hamono is a relatively “new” knife maker, established in 1959 in Seki by Masami Horibe, he grew in Seki city, the city of blacksmiths, and naturally became a craftsman. Producing a stable Kuro-uchi finish on stainless steel was challenging, so they tackled it head-on with the goal of producing “Real Kuro-uchi”(meaning no coats or dyes) knives to achieve high performance with classic beauty and ease of care. After 29 months of research and development, they finally found the technique to create a real kuro-uchi finish on stainless steel.
VG10 Stainless steel makes these knives super sharp, reliable, and easy to care for while the pakkawood handles are elegant and rugged.
