This sasanoha by Takeda is an excellent choice for those that enjoy the aesthetics, construction and steel used by Takeda but prefer a gyuto style knife with a little less height.
Like all of Mr. Takedaís knives that we offer, this blade is constructed with an Aogami Super core which can take and hold a highly refined and very acute edge. As the name implies, the Takeda Stainless Clad series wraps the core Aogami steel with softer layers of stainless steel to provide a great combination of fine grain carbon steel performance with the ease of maintenance associated with stainless construction. This knife is made with a 50/50 compound grind and a very tall, acute edge bevel. Takeda knives are known for their incredible thinness and light weight along with an iconic aesthetic and unique Kurouchi finish. We are very pleased to carry these tremendous hand crafted blades on our site.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
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.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
