Bunka is Multi-Purpose Knife.

The Bunka looks like a Bonafide badass. It is a multipurpose knife akin to the Santoku. “Bunka” translates to “culture.” A cross between the Nakiri and Gyuto, Bunka can do it all.


Only cut food you can bite through with this knife. Hard foods can chip the blade. No olive pits, bones, lobster shells, woody stems or parmesan rinds. Cutting frozen food is especially bad because the cold will make hard steel even more brittle. If you wouldn’t chew it with your own teeth, don’t cut it.  

After use, wash the knife by hand with regular dish soap, rinse with hot water and dry by hand immediately

Aogami Steel easily gets rust and requires good maintenance.

Dishwashers are very bad for knives.  


Hitachi Co., around 1.4% carbon, aogami base + 0.4% molybdenum, 0.4% vanadium, HRC around 61-65.
This high-quality steel is even harder and stronger when it is treated well. Able to take very sharp, resistant edges, it cuts beautifully.
