Product information

Ittetsu knives are forged by a group of blacksmiths working out of Sanjo City, Japan. They produce knives following master bladesmith, Tadafusa’s OEM designs. The Nashiji (pear skin) finish is a great introduction to Japanese knives. The Blue # 2 High-Carbon steel is clad between two pieces of stainless steel forming a Sanmai blade construction. This offers the benefits of High-Carbon steel & the ease of stainless. A Bunka is versatile much like a Santoku. They are recognizable by the hard clip of the tip making it a drop point design. Its profile exhibits a shorter blade with modest curve making it user-friendly and versatile.
