Hitohira Futana S3 Nashiji Bunka 170mm Cherry Wood Handle
The Futana series is a great series for anyone getting into Japanese kitchen knives for elegant aesthetics and beautifully finished wooden handles. The S3 line is features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, wherea the SB line boasts Blue Super carbon steel that will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, however).
We highly recommend the Futana blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
A Bunka is a Santoku (an all-purpose knife) with a kiritsuke-tip. The accentuated tip is great for delicate work, whilst sharing the same versatility as the Santoku. It is a great knife as an addition to an existing all-purpose blade or as a first all-purpose knife for any cook.
