Many of our customers are huge fans of French Profile knives, sometimes known as KS profile. These ubiquitous blades have a long slender shape with a short height to length ratio that many users love.

As recent demand for this shape escalated, we asked several of our best knife makers to reinterpret the knife in their own way. The knife featured here is the work of Tanaka Kama Kogyo, who 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 custom handle made by our woodworker Brandon, using stabilized woods.
