Shigeki Tanaka is a young, passionate and highly skilled craftsman. Tanaka-San has gained his knife-making skill through training in Takefu, Fukui. With his exceptional craftsmanship, and unique yet traditional design, his knives offer something a bit different to the more common hammered Damascus knives.
This range is made from the superb Silver Steel No.3, with an HRC of 59 to 61, and shares pretty much the same retention and sharpness characteristics of to better known VG-10 steel. The blade is subtle in appearance with a dulled 'Nashiji' finish
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
