Mr. Sakoda is a new blacksmith for CKTG . He is located in Tosa area which is a few hours drive south and east of Osaka. He produces simple Japanese Kataba and Gyutos. The blades he forges use Aogami super with stainless steel cladding and he does most of the work by hand including hand grinding the blades with a file. He uses 4 different stones and the final process is done with a natural stone. As a result, the production capacity is limited.
