Prized for their height, thin ductile blades, excellent grinds and completely unique aesthetic, Takedaís Aogami Super Stainless Clad series of knives are some of the best-selling knives on our site.

This 170mm nakiri has a great 50/50 compound grind that ends in an incredibly acute edge, making veggie prep a breeze. Fit and finish is very good and the octagonal, rosewood handle matches the character of these unique knives perfectly.

    Just got my knife yesterday. It was worth the wait. It was lighter and more balanced than i expected and just glides through veggies. Im happy with this purchase!

    After much research, I decided to invest in the Takeda Nakiri. The reviews and history of Takeda knives certainly did not disappoint. I don't need to rehash all the wonderful features but I will mention how I store this knife. I certainly recommend that after use and cleaning it be stored on a magnetic strip with nothing touching the edge. This will insure proper air circulation for drying.
    I also purchased the saya for storage and transporting. I used some mineral oil on the saya to match the look of the rosewood handle. Then, instead of putting it in a draw, I came up with a way to mount the knife and saya on the side of an existing knife block using plastic adhesive tool hooks.

    I bought the Takeda sharpening stone for this knife, and use a strop for occasional touch-ups after use. Very easy to follow the angle of the blade.

    This knife is well worth the cost, and will be treasured for generations to come.

    A joy to own. A joy to use. A joy to clean. A joy to sharpen. A joy to admire. I absolutely love this knife. There's nothing quite like holding a handmade, functional piece of art like a Takeda blade. It somehow automatically connects you to hundreds of years of history and tradition. To me, the knife is priceless.
