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. Tanaka-San lives and works with his entire family in his blacksmith shop outside Nagasaki and he is a very talented and hard-working smith.

This is the first knife we are carrying in the line of Ginsan knives originating from this shop, and one we are particularly excited about. Ginsan steel is well regarded for its excellent edge taking abilities. It is also a nice steel to sharpen, if somewhat harder than some carbons. The inner core of G-3 is then clad with a multi-layer Damascus stainless steel, so you have a knife that is incredibly strong but also super durable and easy to sharpen. Please note the cladding is handmade by the blacksmith and there are a couple flaws in the cladding that are imperfections so we're discounting the blade $50. It's not going to affect the use of the knife and if you're using it instead of collecting it you won't have a problem.

This knife carries the classic French profile, also known as a KS profile. The blade is long and slender, and so elegant. We have combined his blade with a really well made custom handle made by Studio Khii (Konosuke) using ebony wood in an octagonal shape that is thin, elegant, and a joy to hold. It's a perfect combination and one of the nicer knives we've done this year at this price point.

    Chefknivestogo is an amazing site great products and equally amazing customer service. This knife exceeded my expectations!!! Right out of the box razor sharp and once I did some light work on my stones and gave it the edge profile I like to work with it was even better it was a breeze to sharpen!! The craftsmanship is superb. The handle is one of a kind and just gorgeous I couldn't ask for more. I'm not a fan of light knives but once I started working with this one it just flowed nicely in my hand. I know this gyuto will be my go to for years to come. Thanks to Mr. Richmond for your service and speedy replies. I will be purchasing more from the site and recommending to all my fellow chefs. Thanks again!!!

    4  High quality knife - not much soul, January 23, 2018
    Posted By: Alan Huth - verified customer

    I liken this to the Doi KS profile knife. Big, well-made, high quality everywhere you look. But it doesn't say "please sharpen me" or "please choose me for tonight's dinner". It's a Lexus, not a Corvette. Not an Alfa Romeo. Sits in the garage and starts perfectly every time. A loyal friend, not a mistress.
