Karlo Ban knife set, Bunka&Petty, Aogami 2, 168mm & 117mm
☐ NEW WITH IMPERFECTIONS
Karlo Ban was the first bladesmith I've talked to in person to order/design a custom knife. He is located in Zagreb, Croatia and it is well known in the local knife collecting community. All of his knives are hand-forged in his little shack and is recognized as an apprentice in the American Bladesmith Society guild. His knives have san-mai construction with Aogami 2 used as core material. Knives have a nice weight to them with a great taper to laser-like tip. Bevel grinds were made to my specification - bunka convexly and petty hollow grind. Knives have a great balance with kurouchi finish. They were made before the maker's mark era.
Small spots of patina/rust. Knife will be re-evaluated before shipping out. All major imperfections will be cleaned and blades will be sharpened.

Ordering procedure was very easy and fast. Shipped to Italy in few days. I highly recommend SharpEdge!
Excellent knive and excellent service from the guys. All wrapped in a japanease newspaper that give a touch of authenticity. Bought a beautifull hokiyama santoku in ginsanko. Knife arrived rasor sharp.
Another beautiful Knife, delivered super fast and the Okinawa Reef handle really adds to the quality look and feel.
Perfect for those smaller more delicate cutting/slicing jobs.
Once again super fast delivery to New Zealand, (under a week over the Xmas period).
This 6.5" knife with the Tokyo Night handle is very impressive looking. It is very sharp and has a top quality solid build.
Fantastic for vegetables etc, looking forward to many years of use.
This was a gift for my son so I haven't used the knife. However I have inspected it and (as are the other knives I have purchased at SharpEdge) it is beautifully made and the look and feel are cannot be faulted. The level of service and delivery has always been great from these guys.
Excellent service, very fast delivery, beautiful products.
Fast delivery, excellent knives and professional staff
The knife came as advertised in just a few days from our order. Not only is it pretty and very very sharp but it weighs just a few ounces. We might not be cutting a lot of prosciutto with it, but it will find its way to other uses. We love it! Enjoyed doing business with you.
i have ordered several knives from the ZDP-189 series. i was super satisfied with the supoort.
I can recommend this shop to others.
As usual, service has been top and knives are outstanding.
If you are looking for an excellent Japanese knife I highly recommend sharpedge.
Those Guys are fantastic…the best e-comm experience for knives. Excellent range of products, that goes from knives to blades, handles and accessories. Great customer experience in buying and getting some conversation with them (customer care)…next time, do not waste time surfing the web for other suppliers…sharp edge is definitely the partner you’re looking for!
