The Blacksmith

Takeshi Saji is a master craftsman working out of the famed Takefu knife village, an co-op of incredible craftspeople renowned for it's kitchen knife production. In 1992 he was recognized by the Japanese government as a "Traditional Master Craftsman" and he was one of the founding members of the Takefu knife village. He hand forges each of his knives using the traditional methods passed down through the generations over the past 700 years.

The Shape

The petty knife is great for all the little things. Working off the board in the hand, trimming and garnishing jobs like cleaning Brussels sprouts or strawberries, butchery tasks like breaking down chicken and small fish or as a general purpose knife that you can leave out on the counter if you're a home cook or use during service as your line knife if you're a professional. We would argue it's an essential for the home cook and professional. 

Takefu Knife Village

The Takefu Knife Village is a cooperative workshop in the Echizen region of Japan. It is the home to a long list of blacksmiths that we work with and many young and upcoming apprentices learning the trade. The area has a 700 year long history of smithing with roots in agricultural tools turned cutlery powerhouse.

  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
  • Simply Wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use to keep it from rusting or discouloring.
