For an impressive addition to your kitchen, or a beautiful gift idea, this new 180mm bunka design chef knife in a keepsake box will amaze and delight the most discerning chef or home cook.
Truly a luxury gift, 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 Gingami3.
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.
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 white accents.
The knife is stored in a beautiful handcrafted Salter Fine Cutlery keepsake box. This box has been made from rare and exotic Hawaiian curly koa wood.
There are currently two of these bunkas, each with its own keepsake box, as shown, available for instant sale.
Price shown is for one bunka in keepsake box.
