Description: South Africa bladesmith Dave Skinner brings an exceptional level of work to his knives. Whether the knife is designed for the kitchen, for use out in the field, or for a collector, Skinner brings a refined eye and tremendous skill at the forge to his knives.
A bunka is a Japanese general purpose chef's knife. Like the santoku, a bunka is a knife of many talents that can easily handle all the basic kitchen cutting tasks. Slightly shorter than the standard chef's knife, the bunka is light, agile, and very easy to maneuver. There's just enough belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the bunka's versatility.
The blade is hand ground Bohler K110 semi-stainless steel. K110 is tough, chip, resistant and maintains good edge retention. The blade features a hand rubbed satin finish. The K-tip provides a detail-oriented tip. Because K110 is semi-stainless, we recommend drying the blade after use.
Like the blade, the handle is inspired by Japanese knives. The octagonal shape is extremely comfortable. By using stabilized wood, Skinner ensures this knife will hold up well to the high demands of either a professional or home kitchen. The front of the handle is sealed with a stainless steel spacer, followed by black G10.
This light, nimble kitchen knife from South African bladesmith Dave Skinner is sure to become a kitchen favorite!
Exquisite work throughout!
