170mm Bunka - knife blade by Kuro Kuma
The Black Forged blades from Kuro Kuma feature a core of Blue 2 carbon steel that has been tempered to high hardness for excellent edge retention. The stainless-steel cladding is lightly textured with the blacksmiths hammer, and bears the blackened surface from the forging and quenching process. This helps with food release and the stainless cladding makes for easier maintenance.
The overall feel is rock solid to give you extra confidence when cutting. These blades don't have laser thin grinds, however they are convincingly sharp.
If you've never owned a carbon steel knife, this blade will impress. While knives made entirely of carbon steel need regular maintenance to keep them rust and stain free, our black forged knives are easy to take care of due to their stainless-steel cladding.
The Chef's Armoury Bespoke range gives our customers something truly call their own. Handcrafted, hammer forged blades from top artisans that really excel in looks, feel and performance.
