Description

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.

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