Yu Kurosaki R2 Fujin Wa Bunka 165mm

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 Yu Kurosaki - It’s best to think of Kurosaki-san as an Anakin Skywalker of sorts, he’s incredibly talented and half the age of his colleagues. Imagine how great his knives will be when he’s Obi-Wan’s age.
He never felt that he was a natural blacksmith until he sold his first knife and saw the joy it brought to the customer. Over the years, Kurosaki san has continually experimented with different steels, handles, finishes and shapes. He is best known for his one-of-a-kind flashy pieces, but also has a couple of amazing staple lines at Knifewear.
