Blacksmith Katsuto Tanaka works alongside his family in their small shop located in the town of Matsubara in the city of Omura, Nagasaki Prefecture. Here he hand forges some of our favorite mid-budget knives using a variety of steels.

He has recently started using Ginsan, or G-3, a high grade stainless steel that when hardened correctly can offer many traits of White steel. Ginsan is much easier to sharpen than most stainless alloys and possesses a very high wear rate. The knife is made with an inner core of Ginsan which is clad san-mai style with a multi-layer damascus stainless steel.

The cladding is polished to a high luster and the etched damascus really comes alive on the shimmering blade face. The attractive and high performing blade is coupled to a traditional octagonal handle made from rosewood and black pakka wood.

We are very fond of the bunka design, finding it to be a very versatile knife for many cutting operations in the kitchen. The shorter blade length makes for an easy to control and dexterous utensil while the extremely thin tip makes it adept at delicate and precise tasks.
