Description: 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 plenty belly curve to enable rocking cuts, which just adds to the bunka's versatility.
Francisco Vaz lives in Rio Grande, Brazil. He has been making knives since 2017 and is a master of chef's knives. Each knife that he creates is a handmade, high performance work of art. He grinds all of his knives by hand without the use of jigs and believes heavily in making his knives by hand.
The blade is hand forged CPM-MagnaCut. CPM-MagnaCut is a new premium stainless steel created by Crucible with the help of professional metallurgist Dr. Larrin Thomas. MagnaCut combines the high toughness of CPM-4V with the corrosion resistance of CPM-20CV. This creates a perfect blade steel option for knives that need high toughness and great edge retention while still being easy to maintain. The blade features a shinogi grind for effortless food release. The top is forge finished. The grinds are satin finished. Both the spine and choil are nicely rounded.
Stabilized maple burl handle scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. Bronze pins set the scales in place.
Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
Francisco Vaz chef's knives are tremendous high performance knife in the kitchen. This chef's knife is sure to become a kitchen favorite.
