Tanaka’s family forge has been operating for over a hundred years producing tools and cutlery, originally, they specialized in forging sickles. This Kurouchi Knife has a unique aesthetic due to Tanaka’s processes. During the forging process, materials are exposed to temperatures over 700 degrees Celsius creating a layer of black oxidization on the blade. this film provides a sought-after quality, it makes the iron cladding less susceptible to rust.
