Shigeki Tanaka Aogami Damascus Petty Knives with Japanese-Style Stylish Handles

The Shigeki Tanaka Aogami Damascus series feature beautiful Damascus-patterned blades with a core of Blue Paper (Aogami or Aoko) No.2 Steel, known as prime high carbon steel.
Today, we’d like to introduce three popular handle versions of this Aogami Damascus knives.


Tanaka’s Petty knife with D-shaped Magnolia Wood handle

This material has highest wear resistance and toughness because of special hardness (hardness of 63-64 HRC). Very good choice for high end Japanese kitchen knives.
These masterpieces are carefully forged & finished by the blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka with his own hands for their top-rate cutting performance.


Tanaka’s Petty knife with Octagonal Walnut wood handle

Speaking to the Magnolia Wood handle, the Japanese-Style D-shaped figure fits better comfortably to your hand.
The buffalo tsuba equipped to the handle represents high-quality and excellent durability, that means made for professional originally.
