Tanaka knives are made in a small traditional work shop in Miki City, by Mr. Shigeki Tanaka. Each Tanaka knife is hand-forged in the traditional way, as it has been done for over a thousand years in Japan. Mr. Tanaka is a master Japanese knife blacksmith and he has a growing following in the USA. We were the first US company to import his knives and we think his knives offer great value with excellent performance and high quality at affordable prices. This line of knives is made of Ginsan steel which is high quality Hitachi stainless steel.

    The geometry of this knife over 50mm spine to heal & high grind, thin behind the edge make it excellent with forward push cuts. The tall blade gives it almost a cleaver feel. The handle is not bad good finish on the Ho wood and real buffalo horn not plastic. The Ginsan core steel takes a razor edge on the stones and is easy to sharpen. At 62 hrc. has good edge holding. The spine and choil can use rounding for more comfort with pinch grip. It is an easy fix.
    Hand forged, excellent geometry, chiseled Kanji a lot of knife for the price.

    I absolutely love this knife.
    - It feels solid and beefy but is still nimble and light enough for my tastes.
    - Very thin behind the edge.
    - Denser and smoother ho wood than any of my other wa-handled knives.
    - Ginsanko is a dream to sharpen compared to other stainless.
