The Bunmei knives are produced by Yoshikin and have a high quality steel and a "HONKI" wooden handle. The Bunmei knives are traditional Japanese knives, still widely used by Japanese chefs. Except for the Usuba model, they are all sharpened on one side only. Thanks to the "sandblasting", which makes the blade satin, the foods "stick" less to the blade. These knives give your kitchen an unmistakable oriental style.
