Bunka - Giri
Bunkas are treated like gyutos. Universal but with a lower drop point from the spine to the tip which gives the edge less rock and more chop. It has a balance in both worlds of technique in cutting. Bunkas lean more to workhorse grinds to be used "all day, every day."
The grind itself is more of a workhorse profile but is very thin for precision cuts as well. Its low compound grind parallel to the edge makes this a breeze to cut anything.
I left the traditional Japanese Kuroichi finish of
contrasting black and steel, for an authentic ancient but modern look.
