This product is currently sold out.
Mitsuaki Takada-san has trained under Hiroshi Ashi-san for years before setting up his own sharpening house, Takada Hamono late 2019. Takada-san has a unique sense of beauty in his patterns and profiles but what sets his work apart from other blades is his consistent convex grind that imbues both strength and cutting ability in perfect balance; additionally, his style minimizes ingredient stiction to the blade. He is a jolly man full of smiles, and we are proud to support his new venture.
He offers a few different finishes for his blades, and HH Reika is a identification for Takada's flower motif hammered finish.
Santoku is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for tight spaces and it is the one that most home cooks should purchase first. This longer santoku offers slightly different dimensions to a category that is usually dominated by chef's knives. If you found regular santokus to be slightly too short for ingredients such as cabbage, squash or celeriac etc, this is the blade for you.
