Blacksmith | Yoshikazu Tanaka (Hitohira)

Hitohira Japan curates some of Japan's finest sharpeners together with renowned Sakai blacksmith Yoshikazu Tanaka.
Widely considered one of Japanese best, Yoshikazu San is known for his superior heat treatment technique, yielding very high sharpness and edge retention. Even by (the inherently high) Japanese standards, his work is more meticulous than many other smiths, hand-crafting much lower numbers of knives per day.
