Shosui Takeda Blacksmith

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


 ~ Direct from the Maker – Rare Collaboration ~ 

I have admired Takedas knives for many years.  Takeda Smithy was founded in 1920 and moved to Niimi in 1951 to produce hand-forged blades and tools such as kitchen knives, hoes, hatchets, etc. A third generation master blacksmith, Shosui Takeda specializes in hand forging blades from the highest quality carbon steel, his NEW Aogami Super Steel (NAS). The blades are marked with “NAS”, the Aogami Super Steel core is clad with a Stainless steel, 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 from the recent NYCKS 2016

 Master Takeda hand forged this Classic Drop Point blade from his famous Aogami Super Steel and then passed the completed blade to M. Moriya, this is the traditional way fine Japanese Swords were created for centuries, one master for each craft.

Kansei added the gorgeous, Amber Sambar Stag handle scales and the Satin Finished Nickel Silver Guard. The handle provides a Full Grip ~ wonderful custom contouring.

A very special collaboration knife from these two craftsmen. 

Takeda’s Signature is hand stamped into the blade, along with the AS for Aogami Super Steel designation. Expert Differential Heat Treat and the beautiful Lamination Line in the Steel (showing the Hardness gradient of the Razor Sharp Super Steel Edge) is clearly visible on the blade.

The blade is hand sharpened to razor like sharpness on increasing grits of Natural Japanese Waterstones.
