    Sharpest Knife

    I recently purchased the Enso 7inch Bunka knife and I couldn’t be happier. The knife is super sharp, light weight and well balanced. It holds an edge extremely well and I’ve owned many great knives including Shun and Global and this may surpass them all in terms of performance!

    Best knife so far

    Got it on sale month ago. Put it in use immediately it’s razor sharp be careful! With my continuing knives evolution I can certainly admit a big difference between Chinese made Copies and originals made in Japan. After few uses of 73 layers Damascan steel Chinese knife showed me microscopic dents right on the cutting edge of the knife, That was upsetting also it much heavier than Japanese. kudos to Japan! Looks like they know what they doing. and no offense to great country of China! Giving you pictures of both and thank you!

    Stunningly beautiful and sharp

    This is my first Bunka knife and I have been using it now for about a month. The fit and finish is outstanding and it comes incredibly sharp out of the box . . . I found no need to give it an extra strop or finish on a high grit stone. I use it for the most part as a substitute for a similar sized nakiri, and this knife is a bit thinner, lighter, and more delicate feeling than the nakiri. It makes short work of vegetables of all sort. Over a month of use, it feels just as sharp as the day I took it out of the box and hence haven't had tried sharpening it yet (I've been warned that SG2 is going to be more difficult to sharpen). The handle is beautiful and comfortable, although interestingly, feels a bit smaller than the more plain looking handles on the Enso HD knives, which I actually prefer over the handles on the SG2. Bottom line though is that this a great value for an SG2 knife, comes incredibly sharp out of the box, and is a joy to use. The bunka shape strikes a nice balance between a nakiri and a traditional western chef's knife.

    Yeessss

    Beautifully made. Fit and finish are everything I could have hoped for. The handle is daintier than I'm used to but, for me, a pinch grip is probably best anyway for a blade of this design. It feels lighter than its 6.75 oz. weight. Balance point is right where it should be, at the choil. The knife arrived very sharp. After a couple of weeks as my go-to knife for vegetables, the edge is holding up nicely. I really like this knife.
