Sakai Takayuki White #2 Tall Bunka 180mm
This blade is forged from Yasuki white #2 steel and cladded in soft iron by Master blacksmith Kenji Togashi. The blade had a rustic kurouchi finish that helps protect the iron cladding for ease of maintenance. This tall bunka shape is ground thin for ease of cutting and a great candidate for high volume vegetable prep. The handle is made from bubinga wood and ebony ferrule.
