 Shigeki Tanaka


Shigeki Tanaka started his blacksmith journey when he apprenticed in the Takefu knife village near Echizen city for three years. A region renowned for it's cutlery making and forging techniques he learned the intricacies of hand forging blades used for food production there. He later moved back to Miki City to continue his work at his Family's shop where they primarily made sickles and other agricultural tools. Now the shop focuses on Kitchen knives and has gained a reputation worldwide for producing some of the best knives available. 

The Knife

The knives from Shigeki Tanaka feature a house made iron damascus cladding, with a beautiful loose wavey pattern. Very thick spine, and chunky magnolia and buffalo horn handles make this a serious working knife, ready to take on cases and cases of fish!
