Hitohira Futana SB Kuro 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 features a fully stainless blade for ease of maintenance, whereas 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, and a benign discoloration will form regardless).
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.
