Occasionally I see some knives and for one reason or another I find them interesting. I'm wondering if it's worth trying to start a thread for knives you feel stand out. As part of it your post you should say why you think it's interesting

I will start with this one..

Misuzu SKS93 Ko Bunka 105mm
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/miskkobu10.html

Generally people are into their 240mm gyuto, I spotted this and was intrigued by it's shape, it's handle and steel. It's a pretty short blade! It would be interesting to try out though. I have a preference for flat/flatter edged blades and this one is definitely that! The steel is something I really don't know much/anything about and how it compares to more mainstream japanese steels. The handle - they've etched what looks like 3 acorns to it. How unusual is that!

I wouldn't mind giving this knife a go to see how it handles

bunka is a style I am most excited to try. I have never used one but since really getting into kitchen knives, i think this might be my favorite profile. I would also like to see some bunka gyuto hybrid types

The Shibata is a bunka gyuto hybrid. I is the best I have ever used. I can't recommend it enough.

Here is one I want to try. It's used to peel cucumbers in a tube rolling style. YouTube has some cool videos on this.

I heard Shibata say that it's actually a nakiri/gyuto hybrid.

He did. Isn't a bunka a nakiri with a k tip?

I have been interested in a couple of different Okeya knives and the Misuzu bunkas

Please do try them! I rather like them for doing smaller or detail knife work. I have one of these and love it!
