Fish knife with a slightly curved blade in the form of a Japanese Katana (sword). The Takobiki is ideal for cutting fish fillets when making sashimi and sushi, but also to portion octopus.
Masanobu Okada is a Japanese Dento-Kogeishi - a master of traditional crafts. Working out of the Takefu Knife Village, he represents the third generation of his family to fashion superb kitchen knives. The blade's individual Suminagashi pattern is produced by 20 layers of folded steel enclosing the central cutting layer made of White Paper Steel. This ultrapure carbon steel has extraordinarily fine grinding properties, allowing it to achieve outstanding sharpness. The sandalwood handle possesses a fascinating brown hue with dark lines, and is held in place beneath a black ferrule made of wood laminate. Right-handers will find the knife extremely comfortable to hold thanks to the finger groove positioned on the right side of the handle. The blade bears the signature of the smith and is double-bevelled. Hardened to 60 HRC, not rustproof.
Takefu Knife Village
The Takefu Knife Village is a cooperative of blade-smithing specialists. It has upheld the tradition of metalworking for almost 700 years. A small group of extremely skilled master smiths forge limited series of superb knives in their smithies located in the tiny village in Fukui Province. They craft their products by hand to create one-of-a-kind Japanese kitchen knives made only of the best materials.
