We are constantly looking out for fun pieces of memorabilia that knife lovers and collectors would like to add to their collections, like towels, t-shirts and stickers.
After recently taking up collecting very old coins as a hobby, Mark has been inspired us to produce a coin memento of one of our favorite blacksmiths, Shosui Takeda.
The basic design was developed by the Takeda company itself and over the past months has been refined to suit a coin in terms of looks and production techniques. The back side of the coin has the classic CKTG logo and name, together with the “Stay Sharp” byline in Kanji.
Our forum members have had their say in the design and we think the end result is rather special. It is stamped from metal and then given a bath in acid before being burnished to bring out the details.
We are rather excited about this fun item and hope that it will lead to more memorabilia that knife lovers will add to their collections as well as giving away as gifts.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
