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.
The custom pattern featuring hammer-claw marks with damascus lines near the blade edge 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. The claw marks have a beautiful high-polished finish which contrast beautifully with gray matte damascus lines near the bottom section of each knife.
Our custom handle was created on the Big Island of Hawaii. Completely handcrafted, it features exotic and rare super curly Hawaiian koa wood, Mozambique ebony (both sustainably harvested), nickel-silver, and additional black and white accents.
For easy drawer or countertop storage, we have added a handcrafted leather sheath with Salter logo.
