Takeshi Saji, an Echizen master blacksmith, forged this petty knife using aogami#2. The blade has a colored damascus finish that extends all the way to the grind and it is paired with a lovely piece of desert ironwood. Alternating layers of rust-resistant stainless steel, brass, and copper are used to create the stunning damascus pattern. It's a fantastic knife that isn't overly delicate or fragile. These batches are much thinner than older ones, making them excellent cutters.


※ Takeshi Saji (1948) is one of Japan's most illustrious blacksmith masters. Saji-san is  one of the founding members of Takefu Knife Village. He was officially certified as a "Traditional Master Craftsman" in 1992, a prestigious title awarded only to Japan's best craftsmen. He is a third-generation blacksmith, and his workshop is located in Echizen's Takefu Knife Village, where he forges knives alongside his two apprentices.

He is also known for producing top-of-the-line hunting knives, which were sold in Japan and abroad. In addition to hand-picked wood, he used animal horns to make handles, and over time, he became a leading expert on Western type handles in the region. Yu Kurosaki and other Takefu masters honed their skills under his tutelage as well.

Care Instructions

Japanese kitchen knives requires some attention. It's crucial to pay attention to the following points.

Correct use
• Always use the appropriate knife for the task.
• Refrain from moving the knife in a lateral direction while cutting. Use the thrust-cutting technique. 
• Avoid bones and frozen food.
• Always use a wooden or rubbing cutting board. Avoid hard plastic, glass, or marble. 

• Wash and dry the blade as soon as you're done with it especially carbon steel knives.
• Always wash your Japanese kitchen knife by hand. Never use a dishwasher.

Knife maintenance
 Use sharpening whetstones to sharpen or touch up your Japanese knife. In general, honing rods are not recommended as using these will cause damage to the edge. Honing rods are for western knives. Electric sharpeners and pull through sharpeners should never be used on Japanese kitchen knives.
