Takeshi Saji is a kind, passionate and creative master blacksmith who handcrafts some of the most stunning kitchen knives in Japan.

It is usable art. Each of these masterpiece Santoku's come in a numbered authentic Japanese Kiri wooden box. Expect compliments when you invest in one of these remarkable collectable Santoku's.

It is an honour to own a limited edition knife hand forged to such a high level of craftsmanship by Takeshi Saji. Each time I use it I marvel at the the beauty,perfect balance and the ease of every cut. Thanks to Chris I have now discovered the difference a world class knife makes. Saji's super Aogami edge may rival a handmade Kramer at a fraction of the cost and without the impossible wait. Now where are those chives?
