An absolutely sensational statement piece of a knife with a one of a kind custom handle of the highest quality and finish.
Kato-san is already well known and regarded for his work and the stunning SG2 damascus bunka offers not only a top quality blade but is paired with a full tang pinned handle that complements the simplicity of the blade design incredibly well.
We absolutely love these if you can't already tell!
