The 3D range was created by the same team that developed the Tanaka SG2 range. Working with Kobe Design University they have developed an innovative handle made of fine grain Birch wood. The handle with its beveled end fits the hand perfectly and provides an ergonomic grip regardless of your handling preference.
The blade is hand forged out of VG-10 steal, finished with a 33 layer Suminagashi steel cladding. The blade has been hardened to 61 Rockwell
