Description

What kind of knife is this?

An equally all-round knife as the gyuto but more orientated to homestyle cooking. Incredibly versatile on its own, easy to use, nimble and suitable for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The bunka is a version of the santoku but with a Kiritsuke tip. This style tip will excel in more delicate work while it still retains the all-purpose functionality of the santoku. 

Care Instructions

This is a Semi stainless steel knife. Semi stainless is in between carbon steel and stainless steel, not enough chromium content to be fully stainless but much less fast in oxidising than carbon steel. You can expect semi stainless to be easier in use than carbon, it will oxidise but in a more controlled way than carbon steel. It will in most cases sharpen easier than stainless and responds better to touch ups. It is however still important to store your knife dry and clean, wipe it dry now and again when using, never let it air-dry after washing, no dishwasher and avoid extremely hard products like frozen foods or bones ect.
