Suncraft SG2 Bunka Purchase options

An absolutely beautiful bunka knife with an understated matte finish tapering to expose a thin line of SG2 core steel where every knife is unique. 

The SG2 core steel is clad in R2 powder steel and provides a great level of hardness and edge sharpness and retention and when combined with a well fitted and finished two tone pakka wood handle we think this is a lovely looking knife. 

The bunka is a great shape and offers versatility across a wide range of meat, fish and vegetable prep jobs and at 165mm, it's a perfect all rounder.


The real highlight of this knife is the individual wave pattern created by exposing the SG2 steel core at the cutting edge and then leaving an unpolished matte finish on the SG2 cladding. 

Each blade has a unique finish and pattern and it contrasts well with the dark octagonal handle. 


The SG2 core steel is very hard and will retain its edge and performance for a long time between sharpening.
