Matsubara Knives



Matsubara Knives

Matsubara knives are crafted by fourth-generation blacksmith Katsuto Tanaka in Kyushu, Japan. Tanaka hammer-forges these knives using Blue Steel #2 for edge retention. He attaches softer steel cladding on the outside for stain resistance and ease of sharpening. They feature a beautiful ‘nashiji’ pear skin finish and walnut handles. Our Matsubara line of handmade Japanese kitchen knives includes shapes such as sujihiki, petty, honesuki, and gyutou knives. Shop for these knives on our website.
