Tadafusa

Tadafusa is a Japanese knife maker with a big history. From 1876 it was forbidden to forge Samuraiz in Japan. Many swordsmiths changed from making Samuraiz to the manufacturing of kitchen knives. The Tadafusa family is one of them. The pliers logo is the hallmark of the Tadafusa knives.

The knives from the SN-series have a slightly larger handle compared to other Japanese chef's knives, so this series is extremely suitable for the larger western hands.

Because the knives are forged with a core layer of extremely hard steel and an outer layer of softer stainless steel, 3 layers are formed in the blade. This is clearly seen in the SN series.
