Takayuki Iwai

The knives crafted by Takayuki Iwai are some of our favourites. They hold a charm that is only evident through knives crafted by hand, no two the same. Small differences in surface finish and texture surround a well built San Mai blade, most featuring a Blue 2 Steel core that holds a blazing edge for a very long time. Forged in another famous knife making district of Echizen, Fukui.
