Takamura Chromax Santoku 170mm



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.  Chromax steel is nice steel to work with and loves being sharpened. Chromax is however not stainless and must be kept clean and dry at all times to prevent rust and chipping.

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

Chromax steel is not stainless. If left untreated / cared for, this knife will rust.
