Knife Description

This bunka is made of SG2/R2 powder steel. Powder steels are currently the hardest steels available for knife making, which means the knife will keep a smooth and sharp edge for an extremely long time. This bunka features a matte, unpolished finish with a very pronounced line at the bottom of the blade. This line indicates the border between the two softer, outer layers of steel, and the strong SG2 core steel, seen exposed at the very edge of the blade. We love the geometry and the slim profile, so we recommend it to all cooks, regardless if you are a professional chef or a passionate home cook. SG2 Bunka Matte is forged by Japanese knifemaker Suncraft in the famous knife city Seki in Gifu prefecture. Forged with a common “sandwich” method called san-mai with the core steel made of SG2 powder steel, one of the best stainless steels. The knife was hardened to around 62-63 HRC, which means it will stay sharp for a very, very long time. The composition and microstructure of the steel provide extremely fine and smooth sharpness. The handle attached to the SG2 Bunka Matte followed the same logic as the blade - universal and easy to maintain. A beautiful, dark brown, octagonal-shaped pakka wood handle sits well in your hands regardless if you are left- or right-handed. Pakka wood is a mixture of laminated wood and epoxy resin which is highly durable and will not get stained easily.
