VG10 steel offers a sweet spot of high performance and easy maintenance. As a pretty hard stainless steel it can get very sharp, retain that sharp well, and is very easy to maintain. 

Bunka knives are similar to a Santoku in blade proportions, but have a more angular tip, often referred to as a K tip, or Kiritsuke. 

They make excellent all round knives as they are versatile due to their curved cutting edge and shorter blade length. They are an excellent alternative to the more common Gyuto, chef's knife shape if you prefer a shorter blade.
