Matsubara Blue #2 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 Santoku knife made with high quality carbon steel called Blue #2. It's a steel well known in Japan that takes a nice sharp edge. Mr. Tanaka puts a beautiful stainless steel cladding on these knives and finishes it with a nashiji finish which looks great in person.

    The Matsubara has a lovely wing like shape, has some weight to it so it feels really spill. The choil comes back a bit towards the handle. The surface reminds me of the shoreline of a beach. Cuts really well and is a pleasure to use.
