Shigeki Tanaka began his blacksmithing career in the village of Takefu for three years. He learned the intricacies of hand-forged blades. Later, he returned to Miki to continue his work in his family’s workshop where they mainly made forgeries and other agricultural tools. Now he focuses on kitchen knives and has gained a worldwide reputation for producing some of the best knives available. These knives are a functional work of art and would make a great addition to any collection.
