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. This particular line of knives is made from Shirogami (White) #1 carbon steel and features a beautiful Damascus pattern. This knife has a gorgeous custom handles with impeccable fit and finish and outstanding edge retention and overall performance. These knives are a functional piece of art and would make a great addition to any collection.

This Gyuto is an absolute dream to use. It is perfectly balanced (to our liking) and has a fantastic feel in the hand. The profile of the blade makes it a great up and down chopper and functions beautifully using a rocking motion. It has a nice thin blade but doesn't feel flimsy or weak for lack of a better term and is slightly blade heavy.

The Gyuto is the Japanese equivalent to a standard chef's knife and is the most versatile knife shape available. A must have for professionals cooks and one we would highly recommend to home cooks as well. The size and shape of this style of knife makes it perfect for chopping vegetables, slicing meat, intricate work and even breaking down fish and other animals.



**These knives are quite thin behind the edge and are more prone to chipping if used improperly. 

Knife Care (Iron Clad)

  • This Knife is made from 3 layers of material; A layer of iron on each side protecting a layer of carbon steel at the core, in a process referred to as Sanmai or forge welding. Iron and carbon steel are both susceptible to rust and must be kept dry and clean at all time’s to avoid oxidation and discolouration.
  • Simply wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use.
  • Wash with regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Never put your knife in the dishwasher! The extreme heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Highly acidic ingredients (Onions, Tomatoes, Citrus) Will cause rust and oxidation to happen faster, thus the user must ensure the knife is wiped clean immediately after working with such an ingredient.
  • Should any rust form it can be removed using a rust eraser or a mixture of Baking soda and water to simply scrub it clean.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
  • Never twist or Pry with the knife as it will cause chipping.
