Knife Information

A relatively young but masterful blacksmith, Shigeki Tanaka crafts his knives in a workshop in Miki City, Japan. Known for being skilful and creative, he works with almost all knifemaking steels, from high carbon like Aogami, to powder stainless steel. His range of R2/SG2 Black Damascus had our jaws on the floor when we received our first shipment from him!

The first thing we noted was the impeccable presentation. A Palownia wooden box houses all his R2 knives and is lined with red velvet. The etching of these blades has left a dark, misty, striking Damascus pattern, and are dressed in Walnut handles. Beautifully thin grinds ensure fantastic cutting performance, and 64HRC guarantees phenomenal edge retention

Shigeki Tanaka

A relatively young but masterful blacksmith, Shigeki Tanaka crafts his knives in a workshop in Miki City, Japan.

Blade Type

The Nakiri knife, revered in Japanese culinary traditions, is engineered for exceptional vegetable cutting. Featuring a distinct, straight-edged, and rectangular blade, it excels in creating uniform, precise cuts and aesthetic presentation. Its technical design ensures efficiency and precision, making it a valuable tool for both professional chefs and home cooks.

Steel Type

SG “Powder Stainless Steel” contains more carbon that traditional carbon steel knives (Aogami, Shirogami) but is also high in stainless elements. This means your knife will hold an extremely sharp edge for a very long time, whilst requiring basically no maintenance in order to stay rust-free. This steel is extremely hard. The harder the steel, the more brittle it can be.

Recommended Maintenance

· Store your knife in a dry environment away from leather pouches or any sources of moisture.

· To maintain your Japanese knives’ sharp edge use a
whetstone. Stones are available on our website.
