Ogata san is one of the many knife makers of the Takefu Knife Village cooperative factory based in Echizen Japan. This line features SG2 stainless steel that takes an outstanding edge and holds it well. Because the knives have steep edges we recommend care when cutting and do not cut hard items like bones or frozen food or stalks and butternut squash or else you can chip the knife. If you treat it with care you'll be rewarded with a knife that will cut effortlessly.

      The perfect knife.....!!, August 13, 2021
    Posted By: Kevin Grosso

    I just discovered these knives under "new arrivals" and immediately purchased the 180mm santoku. The Kasumi finish is beautiful. Overall fit and finish is flawless. The handle has custom appearance and feel. This knife is light and nimble and balances perfectly. I just received the knife yesterday and had to try it out immediately. It was extremely sharp out of the box and food release was excellent. I have purchased quite a few knives from Mark in the past and this knife is without a doubt one of my favorites. I am not a professional sharpener, but I have found SG2 stainless steel to sharpen easily and hold a very sharp edge. In my opinion this knife is very reasonably priced for the high level of craftmanship it embodies. I have already purchased the 170mm nakiri to add to my collection. Ogata-san has a bright future ahead of him. His attention to detail is incredible. I would urge anyone who may be interested in one of Ogata-san's knives to grab one now. Once word gets out about these knives they may be hard to find.
