Takamura is a small hamono located in the heart of Takefu, Fukui Japan.  Run by third generation blacksmith Terukazu Takamura  who inherited the business from his father Toshiyuki Takamura.  VG-10 is a great steel.  Utilizing a higher carbon content (1%) allows this steel to retain a longer edge while keeping stainless due to the 15% of Chromium.  VG-10 steel is a workhorse style steel.  Not prone to chipping and easy to sharpen, this is the steel choice for many chefs and professional cooks.

Three virtues.  Meat, fish and veg.  The Japanese version of an all purpose knife.
