Product Description

Shosui Takeda Blacksmith

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


  ~ Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2017 ~ 

width=400 

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 his New Stainless Clad High quality carbon steel, Aogami Super Steel (NAS), which has added Vanadium. The blades are marked with “NAS” 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 an absolutely gorgeous Gentleman’s Friction Folder 

Master Takeda hand forged the blade for this from his Stainless Clad Aogami Super Steel blade ~ he left the Heat Treat Scale on the exterior to create a Kuro-uchi style finish.    

The Blade is Opened using the hardened extended Stick Tang.  

The Stabilized Box Elder handle has a beautiful range of colors ~ lots of Deep Grain. The Frame and Backspacer are thick Titanium. 

The Lamination Line is clearly visible and the blade was hand sharpened on increasing grits of natural Japanese Waterstones by Takeda to a laser sharp edge.

Complete with a Hand Sewn Leather Pouch style Sheath.  This knife will appeal to anyone who values true hand made tools with a rich history. 

A great traditional knife.
