Tanaka knives are made by Shigeki Tanaka. He works with a small crew of artisans in a small traditional workshop in Miki City, one of the centers of knife making in Japan. He is the son of master blade maker Kazuyuki Tanaka. After his father's passing, Shigeki took over the family business and started making a name for himself and furthering the reputation of the family business. He uses the traditional methods to make all of his knives which we really enjoy.

The knife featured here is from a small run of Blue #2 knives with nashiji finish that we are putting custom handles on. The very popular Blue Paper #2 carbon steel is hardened to 60+ HRC. The core steel is covered with a softer steel to add strength and lightness. The blade face is given a very attractive nashiji, or pear-skin, finish. Please be warned, as with any carbon knives, it will discolor and rust very quickly unless care is taken in the cleaning and drying of the blade.

We have made these special blades available with some finely crafted custom handles made by Brandon, one of our talented wood workers. As each one sells we will replace it with another and change the picture accordingly.
