Introducing

Takamura

Takamura Hamono is headed by Terukazu Takamura, a third generation blacksmith who inherited the factory from his father. Their knives are crafted in Echizen, Fukui, the now famous knife making area of Japan. "Refined and elegant" would be the best words to describe the work that Takamura Hamono produces. Their knives are perfectly balanced, finished with the highest level of attention and care, and represent excellent value for money.

Blade Type

The Santoku knife, a classic in Japanese kitchens, translates to "three virtues," symbolizing its proficiency in slicing, dicing, and mincing. With a shorter, versatile blade and a balanced design, it's ideal for a range of tasks, from cutting meat to chopping vegetables, making it a beloved all-purpose tool.

Steel Type

VG10 is perhaps the most common of the stainless steels found in Japanese knives. Made by Takefu Special Steel, it’s quality and all round high performance make it a great choice for a knife with good edge holding, low maintenance, and low fragility. VG10 is slightly softer than it’s high-carbon steel counterparts, and as such can be more robust and hard-wearing.

The best knife for it's price

Takamura hamono makes amazing Lazer geometria knives with a superb heat treatment. If you like Lazer geometry with Yo-handle(Western style) and stainless steel, I think takamura's knives are one of the best options.

My only concern with this knife is the fit and finish. The spine and the hill of the knife is not polished nor rounded(you can sand it yourself in 10 minutes, so not a big deal) which is understandable for this price, there are knives 2-3 times more expensive with the same problem
