Tanaka Blacksmith: He is firmly resolved to forge forged steel knives without touching the stainless steel or the main cooking. As for the smithy, it is undoubtedly the upper class of blacksmiths. Because it's handmade, you're going to see a distinct difference in product and quality.Kyuzo: Kyuzo's father, Heihachi, is one of Sakai's busiest sharpeners. Heihachi's workshop and hallway were always full of knives waiting to be sharpened. Although Kyuzo initially worked under his father's guidance to learn the basics of coarse sharpening, he eventually became a student of Kambei, known as one of Sakai's best sharpeners because he knew best. how to sharpen large double bevel knives. After a few years of training, he developed his style based on these respective masters, his father and Kambei. Today Kyuzo is one of the few people who can sharpen a wide double bevel with a very good Shinogi line in Sakai, one of the most difficult sharpening techniques.
