The brand Tabata or Hon-Tanegashima comes from a small but traditional forge from Japan. Strictly speaking, the forge is located on the island of Tanegashima in the south of Japan. So, south of Kagoshima City, high-quality but purist traditional Japanese knives are manufactured. The speciality in the product range of Tabata is the distinctive production of quality scissors. We have also added a few scissors to our knife store and are pleased to offer these original Japanese knives and scissors in Europe. The price-performance ratio of this series is outstanding!
