Shigeki Tanaka represents the third generation of Tanaka Hamono, located in Miki-city, Hyogo prefecture. In an era dominated by large-scale manufacturing methods, Mr. Tanaka upholds the cherished tradition of blacksmithing craftsmanship, honed over millennia. He meticulously forges each knife in a traditional setting, employing time-honored techniques involving furnaces and hammers.

In contrast to modern mass production, knives crafted through his artisanal free-forging approach offer distinct advantages, such as extraordinary edge-retention and durability resulted from consistently textured and refined steel.
