Add a multipurpose knife to your kitchen arsenal with the SharpEdge SG2 Bunka Matte 200 mm (7.9”) Japanese knife. This highly versatile, 8-inch blade is great for cutting everything from vegetables to meat. Designed by SharpEdge and handmade by Japanese knifemaker Suncraft, the SG2 Bunka Matte comes from the famous knife city of Seki, Japan. Hardened to around 62–63 HRC, it was forged using the san-mai sandwich method. The core of the blade consists of SG2 powder steel—one of the hardest stainless steels around. Harder steel means the knife stays sharp for much longer than other knives. Designed to give you a longer and wider blade, it’s great for cutting larger vegetables that small knives can’t handle. The pointy tip—reversed tanto tip—is a distinct feature of Bunka knives, providing precise cuts and carvings. Plus, with a slim blade profile, it delivers smooth sharpness that will last a long time.
