Takeo Murata's Buho Range
A very affordable range that would be a perfect introduction to the look and feel of Japanese knives.
Made in Kochi, Japan by blacksmith Takeo Murata, the Buho range uses a "kurouchi" finish which gives the blades their distinctive black carbonized look and feel. This protects the aogami blue steel and was a finish that was popular in Japan many years ago for its unique look and performance, and remains so even today.
What you get
A textured shiny black box, lined with red card and the knife name in Japanese along the top. Each knife is hand packed in Japanese newspaper from the day it was completed which we feel gives a very nice authentic tone.
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly (and you should be) then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
