Yu Kurosaki Fujin VG10 165mm Bunka

Yu Kurosaki

Regular price £230.00 Sale

Yu Kurosaki, well what can we say, probably the most well known Japanese Blacksmith in a worldwide scale. You don't get that kind of reputation by being average. 

Kurosaki-san has forged his reputation by combining the highest quality of production and skill, traditional techniques, and new and exciting contemporary designs. Not only do his knives perform and last second to none, but they also stand out with their incredible and innovative designs, patterns and handles. 

The Fujin range are designed with a very unique Tsuchime (hammered) pattern representing wind from god. Made from Stainless VG10 steel these are a hard steel meaning you get amazing edge retention and incredible sharpness. It doesn't get much better than that. Any Yu Kurosaki knife is highly recommended by us. 

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.

Specifications:
Knife Type: Bunka
Steel Type: VG10
Blade Hardness: HRC 61-62
Blade Type: Double edged blade
Blade Length: 165mm

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
