We are pleased to be able to bring you some stunning new knives from second generation blacksmith Yuzou Tani. Mr. Tani is a smith who works in Sakai, Japan. He was born in 1962, and has been blacksmithing for 35 years. The shop bearing his family name was established 50 years ago by his father.

We really like smiths who do most of the work themselves and Tani-san not only makes all of his blades by hand but he also laminates the steel too. In the case of this stunning yanagiba, his steel of choice is the evergreen Aogami 2 high carbon steel. This particular alloy is favored by many blacksmiths and knife users, especially in the making of traditional yanagibas. The inner core is clad in a beautiful damascus iron which resembles bubble wrap. The single bevel blade is finished to the highest standards and features a lovely transition at the primary grind between the bubble wrap and the blade edge. All of the work is carried out by Tani-san himself. He is forging the hagane in the photo above.

Our super talented woodworker, Isaiah Schroeder, has echoed the essence of this beautiful blade with his stunning handle creation. He has designed it to match the slim nature of the yanagiba by making the handle thinner in profile than normal. We really like this shape and think it is exactly what this knife deserves.

This is a knife that is both art and science. A thing of beauty to behold and use.
