For nearly a century, Takeda Hamono has been producing exceptional edge-tools and cutlery. Shosui Takeda, representing the 3rd generation of Takeda blacksmiths, is making some of the most unique performance knives on the market from his small shop in Niimi. The Stainless series employs the same Aogami Super steel found in Takeda’s Classic line. The AS is then clad in soft stainless steel, which makes these knives almost as easy to care for as fully stainless alternatives yet they retain the performance associated with finer grained carbon steels.

This 170mm funayuki is an excellent knife for those who enjoy flatter edge profiles. This is another example of a more traditional Japanese pattern rendered with a 50/50 grind and edge by Mr. Takeda. This knife is very thin and the AS has only been taken to 62 HRC which is relatively low for the steel (though quite hard by most objective standards). This treatment enhances the ductility of the knife and durability of the edge. Like all of Takeda’s knives, this funayuki has a wonderful kurouchi finish and is quite tall. The unique geometry of the blade does a wonderful job separating ingredients and the pattern/edge profile of this knife will make it a wonderful option for push/pull cutting and chopping.
