SHIKI R-2 Clad "SR2-6K" Kiritsuke/Bunka 180mm (7 Inch, Quince Wood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


Currently, Mr. Masui (74 years old) is producing his knives all by himself. He has had a long knife making career, yet he still has an active spirit of craftsmanship and creativity. He has decided to make knives for rest of the life, utilizing his own original ideas and knowledge of knife making techniques. He is also making a special effort to pay extra attention to each of the manufacturing process and steps.

Each one of Mr Masui’s knives is designed and handcrafted entirely using his own creative mind and spirit. 

SHIKI R-2 Clad "Kiritsuke/Bunka". Forged blade with R-2 core (HRc. 62) and outer layers of stainless steel.

The hand-contoured handle is made with Quince Wood and has a durable stainless steel bolster with Black Color Fiber Spacer.

The Bunka/Kiritsuke is a general-purpose kitchen knife that used to be just as popular as the Santoku, but has become less commonplace in recent years. With its tall blade, the Bunka knife is particularly suitable for cutting vegetables or fruit and the triangular tip area is particularly useful for detailed work and cutting fish or meat.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.

 

Important

This is the Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.
