Master Yu Kurosaki Shizuku R2 | 165mm Bunka Knife (Zelkova)

Crafted from one of our favourite steels, R2 powdered stainless, Yu Kurosaki forges an attractive finish with a high performance grind. Good F&F and sharpness out of the box, well balanced and a great overall weight, we certainly endorse the widely held appreciation for this knife.

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.
