Hitohira Futana S3 Bunka (All purpose Knife) 170mm:

The Hitohira Futana series is well known for its cutting performance and high-quality steel used.

Hitohira Funtana series is a beautifully balanced knife series.
Able to cut through boneless meats, fruit and veg easily, yet not a super thin “laser” making it a bit more durable than other knives like Fujiwara.
These knives are beautiful work horses, with real Japanese cutting power.

This is the stainless variety.

This is a silver 3 steel knife (Ginsan)
One of my favorite steels for busy professional chef.

The best part about S3 steel is that is basically a stainless version of Shirogami (white) Steel.
S3 is a high Carbon knife that is a little more forgiving as far as maintenance are concerned.

About Bunka: A Bunka knife is just like a Santoku. It is a hybrid between a Guyto (chef knife) and a Nakiri (vegetable knife)
A multi-purpose kitchen knife that is great for slicing, dicing and chopping.

In my experience the only drawback of silver 3 steel is that it doesn’t hold its edge quite as long as a blue or white steel (given good heat treatment), but the low maintenance makes up for it.
Perfect for a busy kitchen or home use.
