Beautiful and elegant looks with a lovely feel and balance to this knife make it a great choice for an all round chef knife and a great addition to the ever popular Yuki range.
The Bunka combines the best of the Nakiri and Santoku shapes to create a visually interesting blade that performs excellently preparing both meat and vegetables.
This knife fits in the Kotetsu Bunka saya. Please note that the saya is not made especially for the knife so there is a little bit of wiggle room towards the tip.
