Mr. Takedaís knives are highly sought after by collectors and chefs alike for their singular aesthetic character and exceptionally high performance for those who prefer taller knives. 50/50 compound grinds and tall edge bevels define the geometry of the Aogami Super Stainless Clad series by Takeda. As the name implies, Aogami Super, or ďAS,Ē is found at the core of these knives which receive a stainless lamination, greatly increasing the anti-corrosive properties and ease of maintenance associated with these blades. The AS core allows the smith to put an incredibly acute edge on these blades, which can be taken to high levels of refinement and exhibit excellent retention. Very thin and light, these knives fly through ingredients. The smoother kurouchi finish on the Stainless series also reduces drag through ingredients, enhancing the performance of this fantastic petty.

  • Weight: 2.6 ounces
  • Blade Length: 140 mm (5.5")
  • Overall Length: 265 mm (10.5")
  • Thickness at Heel: 1.7 mm
  • Blade Height: 37.5 mm

    Please know 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.

    The blade is everything I hoped for: super thin, light, sharp, perfect shape. I have a Takeda stone on order and hope it's as easy to sharpen as Takeda San makes it look in the video! It's good looking too, nicer than the pictures. Fit and finish is great and the smooth kurouchi finish is really nice. A classic look without being overly rustic. Food release is good if not quite as amazing as some reports I'd read. The AS steel edge doesn't seen very reactive at all so far. My only complaints are the ergonomics. The blade is nice and tall (I requested the tallest one they had) but the board clearance is actually less than other knives due to the way the blade meets the handle. The spine being almost flush with the edge of the handle. Also I find the octagonal handle rather uncomfortable. I would much prefer a D shape, or even just oval. Hopefully I'll get used to it because aside from the handle, it's the best knife I've ever used,

    Sweet petty. Bought this knife because the profile is a close match to the Henckels 140mm Santoku that the wife and daughters reach for first (the steel and style for me). Functionally it's a great knife so far - it's agile and sharp oob (haven't had it long enough to need to sharpen it). Deducted 1 star for finish. Glue slopped all over the handle - particularly the ferrule. And there is a 4 long bare streak in the black finish.
