Blade Type

The Bunka knife, a versatile and traditional Japanese kitchen tool, features a distinctive, angular tip and a wide blade. It's designed for precision tasks like slicing, dicing, and chopping. Ideal for handling vegetables, meat, and fish, the Bunka is a multifunctional knife celebrated for its utility and unique aesthetic.

Steel Type

Japanese Blue Super Steel, an elite variant of the "Aogami" series, is a high-carbon steel alloyed with chromium, tungsten, and added vanadium. This composition enhances its wear resistance, edge retention, and overall toughness. It will still rust if left wet for too long, but not as quickly as any of the other carbon steels. Favored in fine knife crafting, Blue Super Steel is renowned for producing exceptionally sharp and durable Japanese knives.

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.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon, semi-stainless steel and will be robust and resistant to rust. While it will not rust quickly like pure carbon, it is still best practice to not leave this knife wet for extended periods as it's stain-less, not stain-none! A light patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will still form over time.
