4th Generation Master Blacksmith:

Katsuto Tanaka is one of the handful of blade smiths still around in Matsubara, Omura City, with a blacksmithing tradition that spans over 800 years. Each blade is hand forged and hammered in Tanaka Kama Kogyo, where knife enthusiasts can attend a hands-on knife-making experience and watch Tanaka-san at work!

Mastubara blades are characterized by their tall blades and thick spine which tapers nicely towards the tip. This makes it a great choice for people with larger hands and those seeking more knuckle clearance. The larger blade profile, combined with the textured nashiji finish gives the blade a refined yet rugged appearance. Additionally the stainless steel nashiji finish also aids in food release and protects the core carbon steel from rusting. 

The core Blue #2 Steel is hardened to HRC 62- 63 which provides a cutting edge with lasting sharpness.
