Bunmei Japanese traditional kitchen knives are made by Yoshikin in Japan, the makers of renowned GLOBAL knives. Each knife is handmade using high carbon Molybdenum/Vanadium Stainless Steel giving the knife excellent edge retention. At first glance, these knives radiate a typical Japanese vibe with its slip-resistant wooden handle and black collar. The Bunmei range includes both traditional Japanese blades that are ground on one side of the blade only, as well as a selection of the best selling Western-style blades that we all know and love. Bunmei knives are more blade heavy with no bolster and only a partial tang. This is typical of all traditional Japanese knives.
