Shigeki Tanaka Silver 3 Nakiri Purchase options

Subtle and excellently finished by Tanaka san this nakiri makes great use of the durability and edge retention of silver-3 steel.

First Impressions

We like Shigeki Tanaka knives, the more we see of them the more it's clear the skill and consistency of his craft is there in each one and this is no different. 

Sharp out of the box as you might expect and with a nice feel in hand they're a joy to work with and use.

Beauty

As finishes go, this is certainly subtle but the nashiji finish running down to the exposed polished silver 3 core really works nicely and we've paired it with a walnut and black buffalo handle to complete the look.

Durability

Silver 3 or "Gingami No. 3" from Hitachi Metals is a high performance steel that retains an excellent edge comparable to many carbon steels.

Ease of Care

Just rinse, dry and store and make sure you keep the edge in tip top condition with a ceramic honing rod and you're good to go!

Our Verdict

Although relatively young compared to some blacksmiths, Shigeki Tanaka has shown across his many popular knives that he creates top quality knives and across all his ranges the value for money to performance ratio is always good. 

If you're looking for an excellent addition to a collection or a new first knife you would be in good hands with Tanaka san.
