The Bunka knife is a handy combination between the Nakiri (vegetable knife) and the Gyuto (chef knife). Quite versatile, it is shorter than a Gyuto, making it a less intimidating tool.
The blacksmith Yoshimi Kato made this gorgeous knife. The blade is made in #2 Shirogami Steel, also known as white carbon, with a soft stainless steel clad. The knife has been named Yuki (Japanese word for "snow") because of the blade's finish that is reminiscent of a snow blizzart. Its handle is made of Magnolia wood and red pakka wood.
All knives from Masakage are handmade by master blacksmiths of Takefu's village and hand sharpened by one of Japan's best knife sharpeners, Takayuki Shibata san. When these knives come out of their box, they have an amazing sharpness and will stay sharp for an extremely long time due to Shibata san's masterful technique. Alambika is extremely happy to import and retail Japanese knives (from Takefu village) in Canada. The whole kitchen knife collection can be seen and handled in our Montreal store.
