Yoshimi Kato Kurouchi | 170 Bunka Knife (Aogami / Stainless)

From renowned blacksmith Yoshimi Kato, his kurouchi series represent outstanding value for such a very high performing knife. With an Aogami Super (high carbon) core and stainless clad, they are easy to maintain whilst achieving the highest levels of sharpness.

 

These are not quite as thin as other Kato's, still very thin behind the edge but a little more weight than most Echizen knives.

* Our Japanese knives are hand crafted (most with natural materials like timber), small variation to size and colour may occur.

* Kato & Kurosaki knives are very thin, although very high performing they require some care to prevent chipping.

* This knife has a small part of exposed high carbon steel (the edge), this will patina (change colour) in use and requires some care to prevent rust.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Bunka (Home Cook Knife)

Like the Santoku, the Bunka knife is known as a home cook knife. It is very close to a Santoku knife in many ways, varying slightly in shape with a more pointed tip. A versatile kitchen knife widely used throughout the world and one of the better starting points into Japanese knives.

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.
