This is the mid sized version of Takedaís unique Sasanoha blade design. Takeda's standard gyuto is normally a bit taller than the average gyuto, so the Classic Sasanoha is closer in shape and size to other standard gyuto profiles made by other makers. It really is a cross between a gyuto and a sujihiki in overall dimension ratios.
We really like the amazing knives that Takeda-san and his artisan associates produce out of their Niimi workshop. He has become one of the leading protagonists in the art of forging and working Hitachi Super Aogami steel. This is considered to be just about the best mix found for a high carbon steel for knife making. Carbon steels can deliver amazing levels of sharpness and Aogami Super Steel is considered to be about as good as it gets. It is easy to sharpen and gives a silky smooth cut that we've struggled to top.
Aogami Super steel is difficult to work for the blacksmith. This leads to more ruined or unusable blades which pushes up the cost of those blades that are finally offered for sale. Clad with a lovely rustic kurouchi finished soft iron layer, the Takeda Sasanoha is a knife to use and treasure as a true heirloom quality item.

    I have been using this knife for about three months now. It holds its edge really and is really easy to maintain. Only issues is the blade is really fragile. It chips really easily and has a tendency bend out of shape. It's easy to fix but I'm wondering how long it will be before the blade snaps

    I am a home cook.I simply love this knife. It has a decent edge right out of the box, and it sharpens very easy, to a screaming sharp edge.

    This is a very nimble and quick knife, and a lot of fun to use. I am very pleased with this knife!!!

    This knife is purely cool! I would not say its the best slicer - my Takamura goes through products just a bit better - this may be due to Kurouchi finish. However the overall looks and feel of the knife are just awsome! used it daily for a few month - still sharp.
