Tanaka Knives

Tanaka knives have been hand forging kitchen knives since 1946. Based in Miki-City just outside Osaka, Japan. Tanaka Knives was made famous by Kazuyuki Tanaka who along with his son Shigeki developed the SG2 range.

The Tanaka team consists of about a 5-man team who produce each knife completely by hand. The blades are all hand forged by Shegeki Tanaka, while the handles and sharpening is all undertaken by other members of this artisan team.

Shigeki Tanaka is a world-renowned Master Blacksmith and has now taken over Tanaka Knives from his father Kazuyuki. He is a fourth-generation master and produces several kitchen knife series including the SG2 Ironwood, SG2 Wa (Japanese style Handle), VG10 3D, and VG10 Wa.

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 several years and we can highly recommend them.
