Takamura Hamono is headed by Terukazu Takamura, a third generation blacksmith who inherited the factory from his father. Their knives are crafted in Echizen, Fukui, the now famous knife making area of Japan. "Refined and elegant" would be the best words to describe the work that Takamura Hamono produces. Their knives are perfectly balanced, finished with the highest level of attention and care, and represent excellent value for money. Takamura has recently been in the media spotlight for their fantastic work which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dZmeh_28Eo&ab_channel=BusinessInsider 

Best paired with a 20cm felt lined blade guard and a 1000/6000 whetstone

This knife is great for:

✅ Those wanting maximum edge retention and extreme sharpness

✅ Those who like a perfectly balanced, thin blade

✅ General purpose cutting (veg, smaller and larger meats etc)

SG2 is a powder stainless steel made by The Takefu Special Steel Company in Takefu, Japan. It is, in our eyes, the ultimate combination of edge retention, stainless properties, and ease of sharpening. Having more carbon than the Carbon Steels like White and Blue, yet more stainless elements than VG10, knives using this steel are the best of both worlds without the downsides.

Knives with an SG2 core are becoming more prevalent in Japan due to these reasons. Their overall cost may be higher, but is well justified in our opinion.
