Matsubara G3 Nashiji Matsubara blades are made by our friends the Tanaka family in Omura City, just outside Nagasaki. The origins in the blacksmith tradition came to the town with refugees from the Battle of Dannoura, over 800 years ago. Those techniques are still being used today in the production of knives and farm tools. Tanaka Kama Kogyo is a 4th generation blacksmith who owns the shop.

The knife you see here is a petty knife made with high-quality stainless steel called G3 or Ginsan. It's a steel well-known in Japan that takes a nice sharp edge with good stainless properties. Mr. Tanaka puts a beautiful stainless steel cladding on these knives and finishes it with a nashiji finish which looks great in person.

      Awesome little Petty, December 19, 2022
    Posted By: garchtoto

    This Petty is much taller than a typical petty which is great because it has very good knuckle clearance. The spine is much thicker than expected but it gives it a good amount of heft and it does not affect the cutting ability of it. Fit and Finish is really nice considering that it's hand made. The choil is nicely rounded and feels amazing on hand. You can tell that a lot of care went into making this knife. G3 Steel is a great stainless steel that sharpens well and easily while holding a nice edge. If you are looking for a taller petty or even a KO-bunka or Ko-Santoku, I highly recommend this knife from Matsubara!
