Shosui Takeda hand forges these incredible blades in his workshop in Nimi Japan. His skill and mastery of Super Aogami (AS) steel is off the chart. Takeda-San crafts incredibly thin rustic blades that easily take and hold a wicked sharp edge. Food longs to be cut with these ultra performance knives.

Bad Ass Chef's and food enthusiasts in the know cherish handcrafted Takeda chef knives and embrace the black kurochi finish. Takeda blades have achieved a well earned cult following that a factory produced knife could never hope to obtain.

I told Shosui that every cook should own 1 Takeda Gyuto. I coined the expression “ One Knife to Rule Them All” because for many who have bought a Takeda from me it invariably becomes their favorite go to knife.

The 210mm Gyuto is one of his finest knives that can be a pro chefs best friend but also a fantastic home cooks knife. For this reason I have married Takeda's blade to gorgeous upgraded premium stabilized, burled octagon wooden handles. These gorgeous gyuto's are very limited in availability. They are without doubt one of the finest culinary cutting instruments in the world. Invest in yours today and see your joy, performance and confidence soar in your kitchen. CW
