This Bunka in Miyabi's Koh series is made of FC61 fine carbide stainless steel in San Mai construction. Heat-treated and ice-hardened to 61 HRC, the Kasumi polished blade offers very good edge retention. The curvier edge makes this knife especially suitable for rock-chopping, and the Kullenschliff (also known as Hollow-edge) on the blade helps prevent food from sticking to the blade. The blade that features a rounded heel smoothly extends to the stainless steel bolster, and the octagonal pakkawood handle is fitted with Kramer signature mosaic pins.

About Miyabi 雅
Miyabi is Zwilling's answer to the superior quality of Japanese knives. Realising that it is simply impossible to catch up with Japanese knifemaking, Zwilling Group has decided to set up Zwilling Japan, and recruit local craftsmen to make Japanese knives using the tradition of the ancient masters. According to Zwilling, "Miyabi knives are authentic because MIYABI does not try to be Japanese; it really is Japanese."
Wash and dry with a soft sponge, and safely store after use. Avoid cutting into bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.
Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards and high-end composites, and quality plastics such as polyethene make acceptable cutting surfaces, and will help protect and prolong knife’s edge. AVOID glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, non-forgiving surfaces.
We recommend sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones, as we believe they yield the best results for your knives.
