We are honored to be distributors of the Takeda brand of knives. Shosui Takeda is a third generation blacksmith and is one of the most talented blade makers that we represent. Takeda-san and his family handcraft their world renowned blades out of their workshop in Niimi, Japan.
The blade is carefully and painstakingly hand forged and tempered out of Aogami Super Steel. This process is undertaken entirely by eye so each and every blade is uniquely different.
This Kogatana is a very versatile little knife. You can use it as an all purpose paring knife, box cutter, utility knife, fishing knife or for crafts and cutting paper. It is light and small and can easily fit in your knife tackle box, glove compartment or knife bag. This is what knife enjoyment and appreciation are all about. A little gem.
Please note that all measurements are approximations! Takeda-san and his helpers make each of these knives by hand, without a template. As a result, every knife is unique and the stats will vary.

great knife sharp ootb but I had to put a new edge on it so I put up to a 10k and stropped on .25 micron diamond spray on horse, now scary sharp and so agile to do any paring needs in the kitchen.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and it’s evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. It’s nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
