Blacksmith | Terukazu Takamura (Hitohira)
Hitohira Japan brings us the TP & T10 ranges of chef knife crafted by pioneering Japanese blacksmith Terukazu Takamura.
From his blacksmith forge near Takefu Knife Village in Echizen Japan, Terukazu San crafts some of our favourite knives. Utilising high performance stainless steels like R2/SG2, his grind and finish is very consistent with a lovely overall balance. These knives are thin enough for high performance but not too prone to chipping.
Takamura knives are what we often recommend to our family and friends, amazing value.
