Takeda Aogami Super

Takeda knives are hand made by blacksmith Shosui Takeda in Okayama, Japan. Mr. Takeda is a 3rd generation master blacksmith and each knife is carefully and painstakingly forged and tempered out of Blue Aogami Super Steel. Aogami steel is a hard carbon steel , which holds an incredible edge, while still being easy to sharpen. Each Takeda knife is completely unique and razor sharp out of the box. As each knife is handmade, blade lengths and profiles may vary slightly.

Knife length = 7.25" (18.5cm)

Blade length = 3.4" (8.5cm)

* Due to the unique shape of each knife, wooden sheaths do not fit the Takeda knives.
