The Takamura brothers make their knives just down the street from the Takefu Knife Village in Echizen. This hotbed of knife makers boasts many famous names including Saji, Kurosaki, Kato, Ikeda, and countless others. We stock several varieties of their knives including the popular and well-priced VG-10 Hammered line.

These knives are constructed using a san-mai combination of VG-10 and a softer stainless outer cladding. The cladding is given a fine hammered tsuchime finish. The VG-10 hagane is hardened to 61 HRC and together with the stainless jigane, makes for a knife with very rugged characteristics which is also very easy to care for.

This is a classically sized and styled petty, with a blade length of about 150mm and a height at the heel of almost 30mm. It features a nicely radiused choil and a flat cutting edge that sweeps to the fine tip almost 3/4 of the way along the blade. The blade is a beautifully presented satin polished lower road transforming into the upper portion which features that unusual hammered finish and some lovely hand engraved kanji.

The blade is matched to a nicely finished black pakka wood western style handle with a stainless bolster and three stainless pins.

      Great Quality Petty, June 8, 2020
    Posted By: Mike

    Great quality knife for the price. This has be my go to for quick vegetable prep where I want more precise cuts. Holds a great edge; I've owned this knife for 3 years now, and really haven't had to do much to it, except maybe hone it against ceramic a few times.

      Could have been great, but..., June 3, 2019

    Beautiful knife, very sharp, fits the hand nicely. But the fit of the bolsters where they meet the scales is slightly off. The transition is noticeable and distracting. Not top tier, but still good value for the price.
