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. Takamura knives are mainly constructed using R2 Powdered steel one of our favourite steels here at the shop. R2 powder is known for its long edge retention and easy maintenance. The Red handled Takamura is one of our best sellers and is the perfect knife steel for long days in a professional kitchen.
The Santoku is the Japanese version of an all purpose knife. Great for veg and herbs. Best used with a push and slice motion.
