The Zheltyy model is a mid-size chef knife similar to the Japanese Bunka but with an added Russian touch. Designed in early 2022 in collaboration with an independent Russian blacksmith under the name of ваш Иван (Ivan), this is a one of a kind piece of art. Cryo-Treated at -300°, also known as "Frozen Sharp", this skill intensive task increases the resistance to wear meaning the edge will hold much longer and the knife will stay sharper. With a progressive octagonal handle and rounded edges, it's comfortable and feels great in the hand.
The Bunka is a typically known as a multiple-purpose knife similar to the popular Santoku but with a tip of a Kiritsuke. Great for dicing, slicing or mincing nearly any types of ingredients, this knife will quickly become your favorite go-to.
