Shigeki Tanaka Blue Steel No.2 TEKKA Kurouchi 165mm Santoku Knife

Regular price £0.00 £155.00 Sale

Shigeki Tanaka is a young and passionate blacksmith, creating new knives and styles that are exciting the market. These knives offer an amazing level of craftsmanship and quality and have superb sharpness and durability.

This range is made from Blue Steel No.2, which is a carbon steel with HRC rating of between 63 and 65. This very hard steel has incredible sharpness and exceptional retention while also being easy to sharpen.

Kurouchi roughly translates at 'blacksmith's finish', and retains some of the residue of the forging process. This allows the knives to be cheaper, as some of the production process is removed, and also provides protection to the blade reducing the risk of corrosion. Not only that, but it is a stunning finish, and is very desirable right now.
