Shigeki Tanaka is the fourth generation to hold the reins of his family’s blacksmith shop. The establishment was originally set up by his great-grandfather, Mr. Gentaro, to making sickles during the Meiji Period. This work was continued by his grandfather and father, but as sickle demand was slowing down the men turned their hands to manufacturing kitchen knives.

Shigeki-san was trained in Takefu Village before returning home to eventually take over the family business. He is now renowned as one of the top blacksmiths in Miki, a hot bed of knife making talents.

This beautiful example of Shigeki Tanaka's work features a 270mm blade consisting of a core of Aogami #2 steel, sandwiched between folded damascus ductile iron cladding. Sekiso yanagibas are ground masterfully with a very graceful as well as any knife out there. Tanaka knives are well known for superb out of the box sharpness, so a little bit of strop time is all that may be required to get these blades screaming sharp.

We are selling this example with a stunning D-shaped handle that perfectly balances the blade and matches the outstanding aesthetic qualities of this superb knife.
