Ohishi Blue #1 Kurouchi Bunka 165mm Rosewood Handle
A line under the company Akifusa, Ohishi refers to the name of a small village near Mount Fuji where their knives are made. Coincidentally, Ohishi sounds very similar to “Oishi!” - a phrase people in Japan say to show their appreciation for a delicious meal. Carrying both Japanese and Western handled knives, Ohishi’s goal is to help people everywhere create “Oishi meals using Ohishi knives.”
The Ohishi Blue #1 Kurouchi line is a perfect blade to get a taste of full carbon steel, and learn all of its characteristics / maintenance at an entry price point.
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.
