Makoto Tadokoro is a young blacksmith from Tosa Japan and was trained by Morihiro san from Sakai who is considered one of the best blade sharpeners in Japan.

This fine sujihiki is made with G3 stainless steel as its core. Manufactured by Hitachi Metals, Ltd., G3 contains 1.05% carbon, 13% chromium, and 0.8% manganese. It is usually hardened to between 59-62 HRC. One main benefit of this particular steel is its similarity to carbon alloys. Being made with very pure, fine particle components elevates the steel to the top performance rung among other stainless steel. Ginsan-ko contains high carbon but is rust and stain-resistant. Being clad with softer stainless steel makes it easy to maintain while the core of G3 guarantees great cutting performance.

This is a nicely proportioned knife with a reasonable height and well-conceived profile. The rosewood octagonal handle is finished to a high standard and complements the beautiful hand-chiseled kanji characters on the blade face.
