Yoshikazu Tanaka is one of the most famous knife makers in Japan. Tanaka-san works in Sakai City forging knives for some of the top brands and chefs. He is particularly well known for his blue steel knives that he makes for one of the country’s top makers. He is universally lauded for his heat treatment and his forging skills. One aspect of his knives that is loved by all is a very unique clad-line between the hagane and jigane compared to other makers. He also usually has more core steel exposed than you would normally see on other blades.

The versions we are stocking are made from Blue #1 steel that have a soft iron jigane featuring a very nice kurouchi finish. The dark upper blade contrasts perfectly with the sand blasted lower face along the shinogi. Some lovely kanji elements add to the refined look of the knife. That look is further enhanced by the addition of a very well-finished octagonal handle made from rosewood and colored pakka wood.

We are so pleased to be able to offer you these wonderful creations made by a true Master Blacksmith.

      Yoshikazu is the BMW of knives, October 23, 2021
    Posted By: Andrew Dyal Heschel

    Yoshikazu Tanaka is the BMW of knives and I search them out. Well balanced and a little thicker than most. Crazy nice on handle and custome, just beautiful. Just the best knife for steel you can buy.
