Knife Condition


Knife Description

Shigeki Tanaka is a young skilled craftsman whose knives are great performers in the kitchen. This Santoku is no exception. This knife is a great all-rounder chef knife and is especially good for those intimidated by larger blades, or more veggie lovers. The heart of this knife is an Aogami #2 Blue steel core with beautiful Damascus 17 layers cladding. The core and the cladding are both fully reactive which makes this knife not stain resistant. This knife needs good maintenance and the blade will develop a light patina over time and use. Tanaka Santoku is super sharp, in fact, it will be one of the easiest knives for sharpening as it has the ability to hold an edge for a very very long time.


Small rust spots on a few parts of the blade (see product photos for details), no kanji on the blade, poorly visible stamp.
