Description

Takamura Cutlery is a second-generation workshop highly regarded by chefs worldwide for producing top quality kitchen knives. Pioneers in the use of high performing powdered steels, their blades are renowned for their incredible edge retention and extreme attention to detail in every step of the crafting process.

Featuring beautiful hammered Tsuchime blades, the Takamura Santoku features Chromax steel. Chromax is similar to R2 powdered steel, with excellent edge retention but with a slightly tougher feel. Featuring incredibly thin blades and steep grind angles, these knives perform at an exceptional level for a reasonable price point. Each knife is hand sharpened to ensure top-notch sharpness right out of the box.
