Similar to the Santoku knife, the Bunka shape is perfect for general preparation. The triangle-shaped tip makes it ideal on meats and fish. When choosing between a Bunka and a Santoku it is simply down to personal preference on the shape. Kobe is a centre of excellence for Japanese knife production. This range is a superb example of the knife maker’s art. Twenty layers of carbon steel surround a cutting core of white carbon steel No.2 creating a fantastic double bevelled knife. These knives have a traditional magnolia wood handle combined with a black pakka wood ferrule. Rockwell hardness 60-61. Important information; Carbon steel knives will oxidise and discolour. This is not a fault, it is a nature of the material. They must be dried after use and traditionally they are treated after use with camellia oil which inhibits the oxidation process. If the fact that carbon steel requires a little bit more maintenance is of concern then a laminated or folded steel knife should be considered. You can purchase rust erasers to clean the blades.

All Kin Knives come with a lifetime guarantee as long as they are treated correctly in accordance with our care instructions.

February is a funny old month isn’t it!? 

Christmas is becoming a distant memory and all the hope for sunny days of spring and summer is looming! 

We have nearly got our events diary fully sorted for 2024 and have a good feeling about the rest of the year. We have the big Japan trip in April which I am sooo excited for too! 

Happy Friday!

A night to remember 💫 A wonderful evening of absolutely delicious food and incredible company at the @thegreenmaneversholt 💚 @candicebrown and the team have created such a beautiful and charming pub! The cocktails are also AMAZING (so we had to test quite a few from the list!!) Well worth the visit and of course the GBBO stars sticky toffee pudding was hands down the best I have ever eaten! 

@emma_burbidge @darren_burbidge @kin_boards should we make this an annual trip!?
