This stunning looker is another example of the outstanding craftsmanship of master blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka. He uses the well liked Blue #2 carbon steel as his core which is laminated with a fine looking damascus cladding made from a soft iron. The knife is fully reactive, so it does need to be carefully dried after use or before being stored.

Tanaka-san makes his knives in his small workshop located in Miki City. He works there with a small crew of artisans who collectively put out some of the best looking and performing knives we sell. In particular, his gyutos are ground masterfully with a very graceful convex that will shed food as well as any knife out there. Tanaka knives are well known for coming out of the box swinging with a really nice working edge already in place. Most people will not need more than a little bit of strop time to really get these blades screaming sharp.

For a good feel of what you can expect from this knife, check out the demonstration video below. Please note this one has a custom handle whereas the video shows the standard handle. But donít worry, you will get the custom one pictured!
