Small all-purpose knife with rural look from traditional forge work

This hand-forged bunka from Matsubara is ground on both sides of the blade and has a matte Kurouchi surface. Kurouchi is a special form of surface finish that is not unusual in Japanese knives. The surface is carbonized and therefore black. This blade finish significantly improves the resistance and corrosion resistance of the knife, in addition to creating this rustic aesthetic. The core of the blade is made of White #1 steel with a hardness of 63 HRC. White #1, or Shirogami 1, is a steel made by Hitachi and is extremely popular with Japanese chef's knives, as it brings ideal properties for a sharp blade. The steel (Japanese: Hagane) can be brought to over 65 HRC depending on the hardening process, which allows the blade to be ground very sharp. A layer of softer, non-stainless steel is welded around the blade core using the San Mai method. The softer carbon steel on the blade blade not only protects the inner steel core, but also gives the blade a degree of flexibility.

This chef's knife is a small all-purpose knife with its blade length of 150 mm. The knife has a slight radius towards the tip of the blade and can easily be used for vegetables such as onions, leeks, carrots, etc. in a cradle cut. The tip gives the knife ideal properties for fine cuts on fish, vegetables or even meat. The knife is suitable for professional chefs and amateur cooks who are looking for an all-purpose knife with a small blade and an attractive design.

Matsubara knives are perfectly balanced and allow for optimal cutting.

The chef's knife is forged by Tanaka-san from the Matsubara forge in Japan.
