Shigeki Tanaka 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 was trained by his illustrious father, master blade maker Kazuyuki Tanaka. Shigeki took over the family business after his father passed and instantly began earning respect both as a blacksmith and leader of the family business. We particularly like that he uses the traditional methods to make all of his knives.

The popular Blue Paper #2 carbon steel is used as the core of this knife, which Shikegi-san hardens to 60+ HRC. The hagane is covered with a softer stainless steel to add strength and shock resistance. The cladding is treated with a very appealing nashiji, or pear skin, finish. Of course, as with any carbon knife, the blade edge will discolor with use. This patina is quite normal and in fact further aids in the protection of the core carbon steel.

The knife is of a medium weight that exhibits a stiff and controlled feel. The blade has a cutting edge length of 244mm coupled to a generous 51mm blade height at the heel. This is a well-proportioned 240 with a medium thick spine that tapers to a very nicely ground thin tip. Users of various cutting persuasions will find much to admire and enjoy in this fine utensil.
