Luxury for the kitchen, this newest addition to our 'Charybdis' design collectible cutlery line is simply stunning and will become a favorite 'go-to' knife for vegetable or meat prep.

Beautiful, unique, and of the highest quality, this knife is functional art meant to be used and passed to future generations.

Custom designed, this bunka, hand-forged exclusively for Salter Fine Cutlery, is made from a very high quality Japanese stainless powder metal die steel, called R2

Every knife has been forged from a solid bar of steel. There are no welded sections like you find in many production knives.  

In addition, the custom pattern containing many small whirlpool shapes, was created in Japan by an 8th generation bladesmith to our own Salter Fine Cutlery proprietary design. He made the blade using time-honored traditional Japanese forging methods. Every small whirlpool shape was created individually by his hand! The blade is signed in kanji by the blademaker.

Our custom handle was created on the Big Island of Hawaii. Completely handcrafted, it features exotic and rare super curly Hawaiian koa wood and Mozambique ebony (both sustainably harvested). It features a traditionalist, clean, faceted handle design.

The knife is offered as knife only. Ask about our storage options, including boxes, stands or sheaths.
