R2,500.00

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.

The Shigeki Tanaka Petty is forged with Aogami Blue Carbon Steel and cladded in Stainless steel for ease of maintenance. The Carbon cutting edge will form a beautiful Blueish Patina overtime. Please make sure to wash and dry properly after use.

Petty

The petty, often referred to as a utility knife is a smaller knife used for delicate tasks such as cutting herbs as well as smaller fruits and vegetables.

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.
