Notice Takohiki Sakimaru Shirogami-1 (WS#1) 330mm Mizu Honyaki By Ikeda Yoshikazu has zero inventory and cannot be added to the cart

Please add it to your kitchen knife collection.

It is a work of traditional craftsman Mr.Yoshikazu Ikeda. 

His products are very difficult to find, even in Japan. 

There is a stamp of Hisatsugu. The pen name of Yoshikazu Ikeda used to

be Hisatsugu.

In the current work

When engraving on the surface, Sakaihokushin

Tang will be stamped with Yoshikazu Ikeda.

Takohiki usually has a square tip, but since this is a Kansai(West area) type,

it becomes sakimaru shape, and it is a classic knife with a narrower blade

width than modern takohiki.

Great for cutting sashimi, and for professional top chef.

Also, although this knife is flexible, both blacksmiths and sharpeners need

advanced skills to make it this way.

There are rumors that Ikeda will retire in the near future.

You may also want to own this knife for investment purposes.

Also this knife was sharpened with three side mirror finishing by

traditional craftman Mr.Shotaro Nomura in Sakai Osaka pref.
