There is so much one can say about the knives that Master Blacksmith Takeshi Saji makes. They boast stunning looks. The fit and finish is beyond reproach. And the performance is world class. Mr. Saji served his apprenticeship under his father, Harakuchi Saji. In 1978 his master and father informed him that he was ready to begin making his own blades. Takeshi Saji was awarded the Dentoukougeishi, or Traditional Masters Craftsman, certification in 1992.

We are very fortunate to be able to get some of his finest examples to sell to our clients. These beautifully crafted and realized knives are forged from R-2 Powdered Metallurgy (PM) high speed tool alloy. This super steel is highly regarded for its excellent edge retention and cutting ability.

Master Saji hammer forges these blades in a san-mai style with an outer layer of soft stainless steel. He gives the jigane a hammer finish which is both rustic and high tech at the same time.

As if this were not enough to entice the most ardent knife lover, we have arranged to have one of our favorite handle makers add his touch to this amazing blade. Matt DeLosso makes some of the most amazing high tech handles in the business and his look really works wonders with these Saji blades. It is made with California spalted sycamore coupled to a mammoth ivory bolster.
