Takeda Hamono was founded in 1920 and moved to Niimi, Okayama in Japan in 1951. The third generation of these master blacksmiths, Shosui Takeda, is renowned for his masterful ability in forging blades from the high quality carbon steel, Aogami Super Steel (AS) from Hitachi Metals, Ltd. Made entirely by hand, Takeda ďASĒ blades have a hardness of 61-63 HRC. Initially after the quenching process, the blades have a hardness 67 HRC, but following two days and two nights of tempering, they are brought down to a more user-friendly hardness. This results in a blade which is extremely resilient, but easy to sharpen. Generally speaking, the Funayuki blade is more pointed with a flatter belly than you would find on a gyuto. The pointed tip and slightly smaller blade area makes for a lighter and more agile knife. Itís a great all rounder especially for those preferring a push/pull cutting action. A lovely rustic kurouchi finish and redwood/ebony handle complete the package. The specifications of Takeda knives can vary, so we prefer to fit the saya to the knife at the time you purchase. We may need to make the saya to fit so this will delay shipping 7-10 days. We will contact you if this is necessary.
