Takayuki has been making blades for over 600 years. During this time they have amassed a wealth of knowledge which has been passed on from generation to generation while being added to by these successive master craftsmen. The company was recently taken over and has since been reinvented with the addition of cutting edge technology to their existing knowledge base.
Takayuki makes knives of every type, style, and price point. The Inox knife featured here is one of their budget creations aimed at home chefs as well as line cooks and students of the cooking arts.
The blade is made from a single piece of a stainless steel which they call Inox. While Inox is a generic term for a stainless alloy containing a minimum of 10.5% chromium by mass, we believe the steel is a classic molybdenum vanadium alloy. These alloys are renowned for their incredible edge taking attributes and their ability to hold that edge for over a long work session. Couple that with its easy to maintain abilities and tough construction and you have a knife that will perform well in most circumstances and with most users. The POM western style handle is also a tough and stable construction that will withstand the rigors of a professional kitchen. The complete package is of a high standard in both looks and performance, especially given its very attractive price.
