Introducing

Takeshi Saji

Takeshi Saji has perhaps one of the widest ranges of blade finishes and stylistic creations of any blacksmith in Japan. He works with all Japanese Carbon Steels, as well as R2, VG10, and others. He crafts his own Damascus in Rainbow, Diamond, and Black Nickel finishes, and fits a wide range of handle types. He can truly do it all, and all at the ripe young age of 73. To this day he produces functional works of art out of the Takefu Knife Village in Japan, surrounded by other like-minded craftsman.

Blade Type

The Sujihiki knife, a traditional Japanese slicer, is designed for carving and fileting. With its long, narrow blade, typically ranging from 240mm to 330mm, it excels in creating clean, smooth cuts through meat and fish. Its length ensures long, uninterrupted strokes, making it perfect for precise slicing tasks.

Steel Type

SG “Powder Stainless Steel” contains more carbon that traditional carbon steel knives (Aogami, Shirogami) but is also high in stainless elements. This means your knife will hold an extremely sharp edge for a very long time, whilst requiring basically no maintenance in order to stay rust-free. This steel is extremely hard. The harder the steel, the more brittle it can be.

Recommended Maintenance

· Store your knife in a dry environment away from leather pouches or any sources of moisture.

· To maintain your Japanese knives’ sharp edge use a
whetstone. Stones are available on our website.
