Tanaka

Shigeki Tanaka apprenticed at Takefu Knife village for three years. He moved back to Miki City where he is currently working at his Family shop. The Tanaka family originally started with sickles and other agricultural tools but focuses on Kitchen Knives that has gained a great reputation worldwide.

Tanaka-San hand-forges his knives in the traditional way, as it has been done for hundreds of years in Japan.

 

Santoku

The Santoku is a multi-purpose knife with a blade profile that allows for great versatility and due to this as well as its smaller form factor, it has become very popular in Western kitchens.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist, cleave or prise the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
