Yoshikazu Tanaka White #1 Damascus Gyuto 210mm No Handle

Experience the mastery of Yoshikazu Tanaka, an esteemed blacksmith with over 50 years of skill and a venerated figure within Sakai's elite blacksmith community. The White #1 Damascus Gyuto, measuring at 210mm, exhibits Tanaka's incredible attention to detail and exceptional forging prowess.

The Art of Yoshikazu Tanaka

Tanaka's uniqueness stems from his use of pine charcoal for quenching knives, resulting in a soft, gradual heating process. By limiting his daily production to a mere 30 knives, he ensures the highest level of precision and care for each piece. Tanaka is also among the few Sakai blacksmiths to utilize a tempering kiln for their knives, amplifying his respected heat treatment mastery.

Signature Design and Craftsmanship

This Gyuto knife boasts a distinct wavy cladding line between the hagane (core steel) and jigane (outer layer), revealing more core steel than most other knives. This feature is a signature of Tanaka's work. With its White #1 core steel and non-stainless Damascus cladding, this knife stands out as an extraordinary addition to any collection.

Lovely knife.

First off Tokushu is top notch. Purchased many knives from them and will continue to do so.
The knife shipped fast came packed well and out of the box it looked fantastic. Very reactive but that was to be expected. Kind was looking forward to that. One thing that I was not expecting was how much the blade would stink when it would react with foods. Looked it up on line and read that this will go away Also not a huge deal. But the one thing I was not happy with and why gave it 4 stars was how dull it was. It was incredibly dull. Also not a huge deal because I took my time on a wet stone and put a edge on it So no big deal. But if let’s say I didn't know how to sharpen I would be pretty bummed that a knife with that price tag came blunt
