Hitohira Imojiya TH | 180mm Bunka Knife
Crafted in Seki-Gifu Japan, the Hitohira Imojiya TH line are a light, thin and sharp stainless steel knife. The grind on one side of these knives is aesthetically a little rough, performance wise however these knives cut very well (as good or better than knives costing twice as much). These are a great service knife for chefs, or a high performing home cook knife that won't break the bank.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Bunka (Home Cook Knife)
Also like it's larger cousin, the Gyuto, this is your go-to knife for any and all tasks within the kitchen. Generally Bunka knives are smaller in size than Gyuto, making them versatile in smaller home kitchens or for cooks with fledgling knife skills. Both styles of knife are multi-tasking machines that can be used for any and all cooking preparation tasks.
As is the case with most Japanese kitchen knives, the Bunka knife is thinner & lighter than other western chef knives, they are normally made from harder steel which can hold a sharper edge.
