Takeshi Saji, who is famous for his exceptional work of hunting knives is now also forging some of the best artisan kitchen knives as well. Obtained the highest award of Dento-Kougeishi in 1994, he is the leading bladesmith in the Echizen district. His work is highly artistic, utilizing some of the most exotic traditional skills and materials to perfect his work. For example, he is famous for using the R2/SG2 powder metallurgy steel to forge his high-end blades, which can reach a mighty HRC 64; for handles, he uses rare natural materials like stag bone, and desert ironwood; he also use the traditional Makie Urushi (one of the most exotic traditional Japanese lacquer painting technique, see here) in some of his limited runs.
