Tanaka Kama Kogyo is a 4th generation blacksmith and owner of Matsubara Hamono, located outside Nagasaki. The Matsubara company has been making knives and tools for many centuries, and their rich history translated into some finely crafted knives that are highly regarded around the world.

This knife is made from Blue #2 high carbon steel. It is a Hitachi manufactured metal and is regarded as one of the best steels to use in the making of kitchen knives. The steel is high carbon, so Tanaka-san clads the blade in a layer of stainless steel so that only the mirror finished edge will be reactive. The nashiji is a hammer applied finish, not pressed, that helps with food release while adding a great look to this finely crafted blade.

This knife is mated to a lovely octagonal handle with a burnt Urushi finish using oak wood. It's a striking combination.

      Very nice knife., March 19, 2019
    Posted By: Michael

    I love this knife. I'll start first by saying this is my first wa 240 and it definitely feels much larger that a western 240 but I love it. Whoever made this handle did a fantastic job the matte type finish goes perfect with the hammered finish of the knife for a rustic look. On top of great looks so far the knife has been performing very well. I haven't got to use it much but it was very sharp otb after a few stropes. I will be using this one very often for sure. The blade has very good corrosion resistance as well which is nice. It's not stainless but you don't need to baby it like some other knives I have. My only negative comment and it's very small is I'd like to see the spine and Choil rounded just and hair more but it is still very comfortable. Awesome and beautiful knife. If you have a chance to buy one of the others jump on it.
