Suisin Tanryu

酔心鍛流 本霞 • 墨流し青二鋼

Yoshikazu Ikeda began pursuing his family business of knife forging when he was only 22 years old. In 1988 he was selected to be one of Sakai City’s blade-making dentoukougeishi, and in 2001 was chosen to be the first member of Sakai City’s Master Craftsmen Organization. Over the past forty years, he has polished his forging techniques for both Japanese swords and kitchen knives. Today Master Ikeda forges knives for top Japanese knife companies and is the chairman of the association of dentoukougeishi, traditional craftsmen acknowledged by the Japanese local government.
