Shigeki Tanaka runs heads a small crew of artisans in a small workshop in Miki City which is about an hour's drive from Kobe and is one of the epicenters of blade making in Japan.

This gyuto a great example of his skills with Blue #2 steel. Blue Paper #2 carbon steel is one of the most popular steels for the making of kitchen cutlery. Tanaka-san hardens it to 60+ HRC and clads it with a softer stainless steel to add strength and resilience. The cladding is treated with a nashiji (pear skin) finish.

These are medium weight knives that have a stiff and controlled feel. The blade is well proportioned with an overall cutting edge length of 244mm coupled to a 51mm blade height at the heel. The spine is quite thick above the heel but tapers to a very nicely realized thin tip.

These are really nice artisanal handmade knives that epitomize the blacksmith art. We are offering a limited number of these knives with custom handles and this one is made with our popular bog oak octagonal using maple spacer and blackwood ferrule.
