Tanaka Kasumi are similar to the Sekiso line except they do not have the Damascus pattern on the blade and are less money because of this. These are great values. The knives are hot forged with a core blade of Blue Paper steel (HRC 60 and up). The knives come with a traditional "D" shaped handle and buffalo horn ferrule. They also come in an attractive presentation box.

4  Great workhorse knife, September 29, 2015
Posted By: Bryan K.

I've had this knife for about 9 months now. It's been used in a professional kitchen setting with about 4-5 days a week usage. Hands down one of the best edge retention balde yanagi I own. This knife will rust pretty quick but not as bad as some of the other white steel knives I've used. The real down side to this is the F&F. I had really sharp edges on the spine, coil, and just above the base of the blade. after a shit, I would have blisters on my fingers. Normally on other Tanakas I own, it only takes a few minutes to sand down the spine to my linking, but the cladded steel was made from a different material and made it extremely difficult to sand down. But since then, I've fallen back in love with this knife and would buy again as a workhorse knife!

Very nice knife for the money. I keep the knife on a towel next to my board at work(sushi bar). The blue paper steel can be pretty reactive so utmost care is needed to keep it from spotting, holds a very keen edge though, F&F is a little disappointing as far as the handle there is a tiny bit of rotational movement of the tang inside, but the blade is secure.
