Hello every one.
Let me introduce my first piece of work posted on KKF.

A 210mm Bunka. It is hand-forged from raw materials, not made from pre-laminated steel sheets.
The hand-forged San Mai blade has more random and unique patterns compared to those made from pre-laminated steel.
The surface is stainless steel, with a carbon tool steel core that has a carbon content of 1.3%.
The composition is similar to the well-known White 1, There are some elemental differences, with a bit more CR and MN.
It has a hardness of 62 HRC and was quenched using water.

It has been hand-polished to a 12,000-grit finish using Shapton sharpening stones.
When it reaches your hands, it will have an excellent initial sharpness.

When designing this Bunka knife, I incorporated my own understanding of this blade type, resulting in a wider blade than usual.

The transition from the spine to the edge is smoother, which reduces resistance when cutting items like onions and carrots. The 210mm length is longer than typical Bunka and Santoku knives, making it more effective for cutting meat.

The wider blade also makes it more convenient to transfer ingredients from the cutting board.

I have made 30 pieces in total.
I have priced it at $129, with free shipping to Europe and North America. However, for remote areas like Alaska or some regions in Canada, shipping costs will need to be recalculated. I strive to keep the shipping fees as low as possible. Generally, it should reach you within 10days.
