Founded in 1872 and located in the city of Sakai, Osaka. Mizuno Tanrenjo has been producing handmade wa-bocho knives for four generations. Without the use of propane or gas for the forges. Mizuno Tanrenjo still employs the use of charcoal to fire their kilns. The raw blade is then allowed to cool in carbonized straw/ash. This longer cooling period helps with any irregularities. We are proud to be the first supplier of Mizuno Tanrenjo knives in Canada.
Although this cleaver feels big at first, its very well balanced and easy to get used to.
