Koutetsu Bunka 180mm



The Koutetsu line of knives comes to us from Takefu via Hiroshima.  Shibata Takayuki, a master sharpener, in partnership with blacksmith Yoshimi Kato create the Koutetsu. Made with R2 Powdered steel, these are some of the thinness and lightest knives in house.  Well balanced and stainless make this not only easy to maintain but a workhorse in the kitchen. - "Art over Beauty."

Custom made saya for this knife also available.

Please note that due to the dwindling resources of rosewood, the Koutetsu line has introduced Jarrah wood as its primary handle. Jarrah is an Australian hardwood used primarily in furniture due to its high durability. Jarrah wood is a great choice for a knife handle; durable, anti-microbial and most importantly, sustainable.
