From the famed Yosikazu Tanaka, one of of the most highly respected blacksmiths out of Sakai. He is known for his outstanding lines including the Konosuke Fujiyama. 

Compared to other blacksmiths, he produces less knives and works at a more leisurely pace. He uses pine charcoal when quenching knives, which  allow for a more gentle and slower heat treatment. Knives made by Tanaka-san has a wavier cladline between the hagane and jigane compared to other makers, and often has more core steel exposed.

Use & Care

  • Do not attempt to cut, hit or chop frozen products or bones. The blade can chip or break with improper use.
  • Hand wash with warm water and towel dry. Never put the knife in a dishwasher, nor soak it in water. Ever!
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade. 
  • Do not use on hard melons or items that may torque the blade.
  • Use a sharpening stone to maintain the sharpness of the blade.
