Blade Type

The Bunka is the new-age variant of the Santoku. It is a great general purpose knife with an angled “K-Tip” allowed more precise tip-work and a handy tool for scraping ingredients across the board without blunting your knife edge.

Steel Type

Japanese Ginsan steel, also known as Silver-3 or G3, is an underrated high-grade semi-stainless steel loved by many for being in the ‘goldilocks zone’ of knife steels. It holds a very respectable edge, but is effortless to sharpen. It is considered the semi-stainless version of White 2. It is the knife steel of choice for many home cooks and professional chefs alike.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.



Okeya knives are crafted by a Father and Son team in Miki City, Hyogo. The Ginsan (Silver 3, GIN3) Stainless Steel series of knives are incredible value for money, perhaps the best we offer. All stainless, with a unique Tsuchime (hammered) finish, they are hardened to HRC61 and hold a great edge without being brittle, whilst being very light and nimble. The grinds are thin behind the edge but come to have a 2mm thick spine.
