Sasanoha literally means 'leaf of bamboo'. This knife has a great shape that is a blend of a traditional yanagiba and a shortened height gyuto. The blade is similar to Sabatier's iconic french chef knife and is very maneuverable, almost like a tall sujihiki. Takeda-san only makes a few of these knives each year so they fall out of stock very quickly. The knife is thin and hard, being made from Aogami super steel with a soft carbon steel san-mai cladding. The core steel is hardened to a Rockwell of 61-63 HRC, a nice spot for this fine steel. The 180mm length blade is light in weight and fast in action. It carries a very fine grind and sharpens to a razor edge. One that will stay true through many cutting sessions. The Takeda Sasanoha 180mm is a beautiful knife featuring a lovely Hamon line running full length along the blade. The well balanced handle is finely crafted from rosewood with an ebony ferrule.

  • Blade length: 186mm
  • Total length: 320mm
  • Weight: 4.2oz
  • Spine thickness: 2.1mm
  • Blade height: 41.1mm

    ** 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.
