Using Upcycled Materials
The steel used for this kitchen knife is some 60-100 years old, originally being made in Sheffield, world renownd for exceptional quality steel.
It's life has already been lived - it's a discarded vintage engineers file. Used to slowly cut and machine all sorts of metal into shape.
By fire I can forge this material into something entire new that can be lovingly used to prepare food every day.
The Bunka is an excellent general purpose knife for the kitchen. A thin blade ideal for slicing through fruit and veg, with a finer, pointed tip sometimes used for filleting fish and more intricate cuts. The very gradual curve of the edge profile makes it most suitable for push/pull cutting as well as a small amount of rocking for finer herbs.
Note that this knife is made of high carbon steel which unlike ordinary stainless steel knives, will react to it's environment . See my care tips in my FAQ.
Your knife will vary slightly from these photos, due to the nature of using natural & reclaimed materials, but it's function and design will be the same. Your desired size will be requested after checkout.
I estimate to dispatch your knife 8-12 weeks after you submit your order. There can be delays if my production list is longer. This is the quickest way to get your knife.
Sign up for my email newsletter and you'll get exclusive access to knives that I make as one-offs. These aren't listed on the website and aren't created to a specific design - so it could be a Nakiri, a French Chef's knife, or something entirely different.
These are first come, first serve.
