Katsuto Tanaka is the principal blacksmith responsible for hand-forging these lovely blades in his famed shop located in the town of Matsubara in the city of Omura, Nagasaki Prefecture.

The blade of this good looking gyuto is made from Aogami 2 steel as the core component which is hardened to a Rockwell rating of 62HRC. Tanaka-san then forge welds a layer of soft stainless steel to the core (hagane) using a technique known as san mai. This involves covering both sides of the blade without wrapping the outer layer (jigane) over the spine. The hagane thus shows through at the edge and on top of the spine. The jigane then receives a really lovely nashiji, or pear skin, finish. The nashiji is a hand applied finish that helps with food release while adding a great look to this finely crafted blade. The hammer marks you see on these blades are made in the forging process and not stamped with a press.

The blade has a profile that is quite flat at the heel end and then transitions into a nice curved belly about halfway along the edge. Blade height is very generous for a 240mm gyuto. This is a robust blade in size and weight which will find favor with users looking for a knife that feels both solid and stiff.

A traditional octagonal shaped custom handle makes the package complete and gives the knife a great look.
