A lot of chef's knife for little money

This hand-forged bunka from Yoshimitsu is ground on both sides and has a matte Kurouchi finish. This blade finish greatly improves the knife's durability and corrosion resistance, plus it creates the rustic aesthetic. The core of the blade is made of White #1 steel.

The excellent price-performance ratio makes this knife an absolute recommendation, because despite the low price it has an excellent balance and can be sharpened very sharp. Suitable, this knife is suitable for most purposes. It can be used for fish, meat and vegetables. Compared to gyuto and santoku, the blade shape of a bunka has advantages in processing fish due to the pointed tip of the knife. Hand forged knives at this price point are hard to find! So this chef's knife can either be your ideal introduction to the world of Japanese hand-forged knives, or another addition to your knives.
