About Takeo Murata - Located in Kochi, Takeo Murata is well known as the top knife maker of Shikoku Island. In 1965, at the age of 16, he started his apprenticeship working with his uncle Tokaiji, the foremost blacksmith of his time. His knives represent some of the best Japan has to offer. The kanji on the knife blade reads “Made by Buhou”. Buhou is Murata’s chosen artisan name, kind of like how Ian Fraser Kilmister is more commonly known as Lemmy.
