Tanaka Blue #2 Petty 150mm Custom. 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 as well as his friend Shiro Kamo. 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.
