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 17 layer Damascus steel range is made from the well renowned VG-10 stain resistant core steel. The blade is subtle in appearance, and is beautifully etched.

A thing of beauty with it's traditional handle.
