Shigeki Tanaka R2/SG2 Black Damascus Gyuto 240mmm

4In stock


A relatively young but masterful blacksmith, Shigeki Tanaka crafts his knives in a workshop in Miki City, Japan. Known for being skilful and creative, he works with almost all knifemaking steels, from high carbon like Aogami, to powder stainless steel. His range of R2/SG2 Black Damascus had our jaws on the floor when we received our first shipment from him!

The first thing we noted was the impeccable presentation. A Palownia wooden box houses all his R2 knives and is lined with red velvet. The etching of these blades has left a dark, misty, striking Damascus pattern, and are dressed in Walnut handles. Beautifully thin grinds ensure fantastic cutting performance, and 64HRC guarantees phenomenal edge retention
