Whilst a little less popular but still similar in its uses to a Santoku or a Gyuto, the Bunka is a great all round kitchen knife and would be an excellent  alternative for someone looking for something a little different. A great choice for all manner of food prep jobs, from dicing meat to slicing veg and everything in between. The Bunka is particularly distinctive because of its pointed, kiritsuke tip, once resigned to use only be the head chef but now much more widely used, it’s a perfect addition for more detailed tasks and it looks great!
