Product Description

Shosui Takeda Blacksmith

  Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer with Shosui Takeda.


   Just Received ~ Direct from the Maker 

 

I have admired Shosui Takedas’ knives for many years.  The Takeda Smithy was founded in 1920 and moved to Niimi in 1951. They produce hand-forged blades and tools such as kitchen knives, hunting knives, hoes, hatchets, etc. A third generation master blacksmith, Shosui Takeda specializes in hand forging blades from the highest quality carbon steel, Aogami Super Steel (AS), which has added Vanadium. The blades are marked with “AS” and Takeda’s Signature, all forged entirely by hand, as it has been done for generations. Each blade holds its edge extraordinarily well and resharpens easily.


Direct from the Maker

This is a traditional Japanese utility folding knife, in Pre War Japan all children and adults carried such a utility knife, this standard blade took care of most tasks.

The Blade was hand forged by Master Takeda from Aogami Super Steel, the uniform San Mai Lamination Line is clearly visible. This is one of Takeda’s Largest Friction Folders.

It is marked NAS along with Takeda’s signature.  It was sharpened on increasing grits of natural Japanese Water Stones and thus is Razor Sharp as all of Takeda’s knives normally arrive.

Takeda used gorgeous Exterior Bark 20,000 year old Mammoth Tusk for the handle. The blade is easily opened using the exposed Tang (that folds back into the handle when open).  The action can be adjust easily using a Torx H10 bit.

 The knife has a full Polished Stainless Frame and beautiful, Thick – Matching Mammoth handles onto the Stainless Frame.
