Masakage Koishi Aogami Super Bunka 170mm Specifications

Think of Masakage as a home for a lot of talented blacksmiths, collectively acting under one roof and name (Masakage). A company started in Echizen by Takayuki Shibata, famed Japanese knife sharpener, it now consists of an assortment of lines which are as unique as the blacksmiths who forge for those lines. Think of it as an aggregation of talent, whereby no matter which knife you buy from Masakage, you are guaranteed a quality Echizen product.

The Koishi line of Masakage is amongst one of its most popular. Forged by Yoshimi Kato, all knives in this line consist of a Blue Super Steel (Aogami Super) core steel, enveloped in stainless cladding with a hammered (tsuchime) pattern and an attractive matte kurouchi finish. Simplified, this means a high-performance core steel with a high contrast hammer kurouchi finish makes any knife in this line a true stunner.

Think of a bunka, like a flatter bellied santoku with a k-tip (reverse tanto). Typically available in all the same sizes as a santoku, the main difference comes from the pointed tip which is useful for precision cuts like scoring an onion or garlic, and the flatter belly which suits push/pull cutting over rock chopping.

You really can't go wrong here, supply is the only issue. So if they are in stock, they will not be for long!

Best place to buy knives!

I have bought several knives from Tony (Tokushu Knives) and will be giving him my business again! The first knife I ordered ended up getting damaged in shipping. Tony responded to my email in less than seven minutes offering a replacement and a free upgraded Wa handle for the trouble, even though he wasn't the one who damaged it. He immediately earned his place as one of the best with such amazing customer support. The replacement was easy, and I bought a second knife from him. They are insanely sharp and well built. They're also not overpriced like so many in the US. 10/10, will be purchasing many knives from Tokushu!!

Love this knife

Bought for my wife. Stains easily but if your someone that enjoys patina and using your knives then this is a joy to use. Very balance. Not too light and not heavy. It is beautiful in detail. My 1-2 is the Bunka and Petty knife majority of the time.

Home use go to knife

This knife has been my go to knife for pretty much everything I do at home. I'd take it to work with the others but then I wouldn't have one at home. I use this knife every day the last 5 months and it is still razor sharp. It so nice I came back and bought the Koishi Nakiri when Tokushu brought them in.
