Included in this set are the following knives :
Hatsukokoro brings in masters of smithing, sharpening, and handle making to ensure quality, and a high attention to detail on their knives, so you know that you will be getting an amazing work knife. At the price these Kurouchi finish knives are a must have workhorse for any kit, the blue #2 steel will take an amazing edge, while being slightly more durable and rust resistant than a White steel (but we still wouldn’t push our luck). The dark octagonal wood handle looks great with the rustic style of the blade, making it as much a show piece as a work knife.
They bunka is to the santoku what the kiritsuke is to the gyuto. With a more aggressive tip and flatter profile than most santokus this bunka will excel at chopping and piercing tasks, and also more detailed tip work. Have that extra length at 180 mm it also walks to line of versatility between the standard sized bunka/santoku and the 210mm gyuto.
