Takayuki Iwai is a small knifemaker based in Echizen, Fukui, not far from the famous knifemaking village where Kurosaki, Saji and Anryu craft their knives. Heavily focused on maintaining traditional manufacturing techniques, the entire process is completed laboriously by hand. This results in knives not of visual perfection, but of soul, character, and a distinct handmade aesthetic. 

Due to the handmade nature of these knives, and the small number of blacksmiths using these techniques, Takayuki Iwai knives are often hard to procure. However, we are now glad to be able to restock these knives with D-Shaped Rosewood handles and black, velvet lined display boxes.
