Tanaka Blacksmith

ステンレス系や本焼きといったものを打たず、鍛接した鋼の包丁に対して強いこだわりを持つ。鍛造に関しては堺の鍛冶屋の中でも間違いなくトップクラスで、特に彼の打つ青一鋼は、研ぎ師が、彼の打ったもの以外は研ぎたがらないというほど、包丁として適切な固さと粘りを持つ。『手作りと言う以上、機械生産品と品質で明確な差をつけなければいけない』と手作りに対して強いこだわりを持つ彼の鍛冶は、現代の技術を理解したうえで、伝統的な鍛冶を行う。利器材の使用や割り込みを行うのが主流の両刃包丁の製作において、合わせの要領で行う両刃包丁の製作からもその様を見て取ることが出来る。

Kyuzo Sharpener

Kyuzo’s father Heihachi is one of the busiest sharpeners in Sakai. Heihachi’s workshop room and corridor were always filled with knives waiting to be sharpened. Although Kyuzo initially worked under his father to learn the foundation of rough sharpening, eventually he became a student of Kambei, known as one of the best sharpeners in Sakai because he knew best how to sharpen wide double bevel knives. After a few years of training, he built his style based on both his father and Kambei’s respective styles. Today, Kyuzo is one of only a few people who can sharpen wide double bevel with really good Shinogi-line in Sakai, one of the most challenging techniques in sharpening.
