The largest size in Takaedaís Sasanoha line makes a really nice alternative to a gyuto and sujihiki combo. This original and versatile blade is hand forged and shaped by Master blacksmith Shosui Takeda. He is definitely one of our favorite blade makers. His years of practice and study have empowered him with an amazing ability to forge this super steel into a very hard yet compliant blade offering super sharpness and edge retention. On the road to achieving the "perfect knife steel" there are always compromises to consider. In the case of Hitachiís Aogami Super Blue there are a few issues to consider. One issue is that it will discolor and take a patina through use as it oxidizes, however this does not effect the performance of the knife. Another consideration is that the hard edge can chip if not treated correctly. This is why it is often, as in this case, wrapped in a softer stainless steel to give it more support. Knives made from AS are primarily made for their superior cutting ability not for hard and abusive tasks. After all, you probably wouldn't go off roading in a Lamborghini (we hope). But buy this fantastic knife for the right reasons and you will be rewarded with an instrument of sublime capability and durability.

    ** If you are buying a saya: The specifications of Takeda knives can vary so we prefer to fit the saya to the knife at the time you purchase the knife. We may need to make the saya to fit the knife. This will delay shipping 7-10 days. We will contact you if this is necessary.
