Tanaka Knives come with iron wood handles. These are all handmade, custom knives that are hot-forged with 32-layer damascus blades. The core blade is made from SG-2 Powdered Steel (HRC 62 and up). Superior in Sharpness and Durability.
Tanaka knives are made in a small traditional work shop in Miki City, by Mr. Kazuyuki Tanaka, along with his son and two other craftsmen. 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.
