The Futana S3 is fast becoming our favourite stainless steel kitchen knife. Crafted in high performance stainless Ginsan steel with a comfortable WA handle, they are one of the sharpest and well balanced stainless knives we have anywhere near this price.
Exceedingly good value for a knife of this quality.

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.
