Bunka knife, Aogami 2 core with stainless steel cladding, nashiji finish - Tadafusa
This product is currently sold out.
A unique Bunka style with aogami steel on the core and clad in stainless steel for easy care. This knife also has a lovely distal taper for better balance.
SHAPE: Bunka. It’s like a Santoku but with a flattter profile and pointed tip also known as a k-tip. While slightly delicate this fine tip can be used for very intricate jobs.
STEEL: Aogami (blue paper) 2 steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. The steel has then been hardened to 62-63 rockwell and wrapped in stainless steel to further ease maintenance.
FINISH: Nashiji or pear skin finish. This matt and mottled finish helps with food release and looks very rustic.
HANDLE: Western shaped bubinga handle.
LENGTH: 165mm in length.
MAKER: Tadafusa - Niigata City, Japan
BEST FOR: One knife for everything.
SAUNDERS SAYS: "This range of knives is both beautiful and functional. The nakiri in this range was one of the knives that got me into this profession and I have owned one for quite a few years now."
