Tanaka Knives

Hand crafted in Japan

Shigeki Tanaka is a world-renowned Master Blacksmith and has now taken over from his father Kazuyuki. He is a fourth-generation master and produces several kitchen knife series including the SG2 Damascus Ironwood, SG2 Damascus Wa (Japanese style Handle), VG10 Damascus, and Silver 3 Nashiji lines. Shigeki also produces knives in other traditional Japanese high carbon steels.

Shigeki is considered an artist within the kitchen knife industry and a number of Michelin stared chefs choose to use a Tanaka kitchen knife as their primary knife. The Modern Cooking team have been working with Tanaka Knives for over a decade and we highly recommend them.

Kurosaki Knives

Hand crafted in Japan

The highly sort after kitchen knives forged by Japanese blacksmith Yu Kurosaki come in several different tsuchimi hammered patterns, including Shizuku, Senko, Fujin, Raijin and Juhyo. Each hammered finish has been inspired by the Japanese gods and nature. The Tsuchimi hammered patterns are both beautiful and functional as they reduce the likelihood that food will stick to the face of the blade as you work with the knives.

The yongest blacksmith to ever attain the title of Master, Yu Kurosaki is considered a rockstar in the Japanese knife making industry. His premium level of fit and finish and undeniably cool style have shone a light on the blacksmiths of Echizen, Japan. To own a Kurosaki knife is to own a piece of Japanese knife making history.
