Chromax steel is a semi stainless alloy that possesses excellent properties for kitchen knives. It is made up of 5% chromium, 1% carbon, 0.9% manganese, 1.2% molybdenum, and 0.5% vanadium. As such, it is much less reactive than regular carbon steels but offers many of the sharpening and performance characteristics of some of the better varieties, like Blue #2.

The Takamura brothers make their knives just down the street from the Takefu Knife Village in Echizen. This hot bed of knife makers boasts many famous names including Saji, Kurosaki, Kato, Ikeda and countless others. The tsuchime hammered pattern featured on these blades was actually first developed and patented by Takamura Cutlery 50 years ago. Since the expiration of the patent, it is now used by many knife makers. It certainly adds a whole lot of class to this blade while aiding with food release and ease of maintenance.

This is a simplified version of the other Chromax Santoku we sell from Takamura, in that the tang is exposed and the handle is made from pakka wood and does not feature a bolster. This results in a knife with great performance and looks, at a super deal of a price. A perfect starter knife for budding chefs, home cooks, or those wishing to take a first dabble in the Japanese kitchen knife world.

      So far one of my favorite knives., June 19, 2020
    Posted By: Joel Santana

    I got this knife as a birthday gift from my dad and have been eyeing it for a while. I'm a professional cook and have just put it through some test and man this knife is amazing, out of box sharpness is about an 8 out of 10, fit and finish is really good. Knife is really light which I like and the blade is really thin and just destroys onions, so far I cannot judge on edge retention but so far I am loving this thing, please CKTG carry some more of these chromax In nakiri, petty.
