    5  Great knife, August 25, 2018
    Posted By: Corey - verified customer

    Comes sharp ootb. I work prep in a commercial kitchen and go through lots of vegetables every day. This knife is excellent for food release with things like mushrooms. Cutting a bushel of red bell peppers, the knife starts out string but towards the end it has a tough time getting through the skin if the pepper isn't very crisp. I touch this up on the kitayama 8000, and after a few passes on each side it's close to how it arrived from the box. The weight is great for long days of prep where a larger heavier knife would eventually become cumbersome. Mine arrived with much more belly than I anticipated, which I prefer. Overall, worth the money if you can afford it and take care of it properly.

    Posted By: Jon Pinson - verified customer

    This review is an attempt to help people in the position I was before I bought my first Takeda. For weeks I struggled with committing to a decision. As much as I wanted one, I was forever telling myself that they can't be THAT much better than my other knives, that there is no way they can be as good as people say...Well folks, they are. I have the kind of personality that is very difficult to impress. I am not one for grand claims unless they are due. Yet I have no problem in saying that not only is this the best knife in my collection, it is so by a great margin. If you are in the position I was, talking yourself out of it because they are expensive, just bite the bullet. You won't look back.

    Yes the CKTG Nakiri Saya C will usually fit. If you buy them together we'll make one work.

    I saw this knife online a year ago and had to have it! I debated whether spending so much was worth it, but based on the family-owned Japanese business and the knives being hand-forged, I went for it! I shopped several sites before deciding on this one and also bought from this site since it's family-owned. I appreciated their input and customer service. Not many places keep this knife in stock. I have started cooking healthier and healthier. I now eat about a 91% plant-based diet, where I chop up a lot of fruits and veggies. I use this knife to chop up all my fruits and veggies and it is amazing. It chops up onions and garlic, and other veggies like that way quicker than any other fancy tools to do. I love the Japanese writing and the heart really drew me in.

    Posted By: Bill - verified customer

    This is my first knife by Takeda, and it certainly does not disappoint. Comes with an awesome edge, and stays scalpel sharp with minimal touchup. The craftsmanship, fit, and finish cannot be realized until you have it in hand. As usual, CKTG provided me with a pleasant experience from start to finish. Could not imagine the need to look anywhere else for these fine knives.

    After much research, I decided to invest in the Takeda Nakiri. The reviews and history of Takeda knives certainly did not disappoint. I don't need to rehash all the wonderful features but I will mention how I store this knife. I certainly recommend that after use and cleaning it be stored on a magnetic strip with nothing touching the edge. This will insure proper air circulation for drying. I also purchased the saya for storage and transporting. I used some mineral oil on the saya to match the look of the rosewood handle. Then, instead of putting it in a draw, I came up with a way to mount the knife and saya on the side of an existing knife block using plastic adhesive tool hooks.See image at link:https://www.flickr.com/photos/coney_island_guy/15022874265/sizes/lI bought the Takeda sharpening stone for this knife, and use a strop for occasional touch-ups after use. Very easy to follow the angle of the blade.This knife is well worth the cost, and will be treasured for generations to come.

    A joy to own. A joy to use. A joy to clean. A joy to sharpen. A joy to admire. I absolutely love this knife. There's nothing quite like holding a handmade, functional piece of art like a Takeda blade. It somehow automatically connects you to hundreds of years of history and tradition. To me, the knife is priceless.
