      Matsubara Knives

      In Omura City, located in the south of Japan near Nagasaki, Mr. Tanaka Kama Kogyo runs his knife workshop in the fourth generation. He is a highly skilled blacksmith who makes both Japanese knives and tools. The tradition of knifemaking in Omura City goes back 800 years into the past. At that time, war refugees settled in Omura City and began the traditional craft of knifemaking.
      Mr. Tanaka is nationally known and highly respected in Japan. He lives and embodies the tradition of blacksmithing and we at Silverback Knives are proud to make his products available in Europe. A Japanese knife from Matsubara is tradition and craftsmanship combined in one authentic product. His Nakiri knives have a special charm and are an ideal addition to any kitchen set.
