  • Nigara Anmon Aogami Damascus Sakimaru Takobiki 240mm

    About the Shape - The Takobiki is a Kanto region (Tokyo) variation of the yanagiba, it translates to "octopus cutter", but isn't limited to just being used to prepare octopus, you'll find it will be adept at any task you might use a yanagiba for, such as preparing sashimi or slicing meat. It can be traditionally found with a square tip, but also it has become more popular recently to see it with the Sakimari tip and is always single-bevel for that extra level of sharpness.

    About Nigara Hamono -Nigara-san is a relatively new knifemaker out of Aomori prefecture, but they are not new as a company. The company has been around for over 350 years, tracing back to their swordsmith ancestors. Knifemaking is a small part of what they do; they also produce large steel beams and such for buildings! Go Yoshizawa, age 35, is a young blacksmith who is the company president's son and has decided to go back to their blacksmithing roots. He now makes unique and stunning tsuchime knives and some hand-folded Damascus.
