New for 2020! 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. These knives are beautiful with high fit and finish using White #2 steel with Japanese traditional ni mai blade grinds. We were seriously impressed when we got a sample of his work and we think you will be too.
