Bunka 170mm Matsubara Blue #2 - Tsuchime finished, Walnut handle
Bunka with exceptional look due to the Tsuchime blade finish.
This hand-forged bunka by Matsubara has a special surface - the Tsuchime finish. This surface finish of the blade is striking and makes this knife special. The sheath steel of this blade is hammered with a special anvil developed by Mr. Tanaka, which creates this special structure. In addition to the great look, this surface also has the benefit that the cut material comes off the knife well due to the unevenness created.
Matsubara knives are perfectly balanced and allow for optimal cutting. The core of the blade is made of Blue #2 steel and is brought to approx. 62 HRC. A layer of softer stainless steel is then welded onto the core using the San Mai method. The softer stainless steel on the blade not only protects the inner steel core, but also gives the blade a certain amount of damping.
This bunka has its centre of gravity towards the tip of the blade, so little force is needed when cutting. At 152 grams, the knife is comparatively massive and therefore also very stable and robust. It is ideal as an all-purpose knife and can be used for cutting meat and fish as well as vegetables and fruit. The tip of the chef's knife can be used for fine cuts on fish and vegetables and allows precise work. So if you are looking for an elegant knife for regular use, you can buy this without hesitation.
Matsubara knows perfectly how to combine visual appeal with sophisticated craftsmanship and perfect functionality.
