Takeda NAS Inagaki Back Lock Folding Knife

About Shosui Takeda - Shosui Takeda’s knives kick-ass, simple as that. A third-generation master blacksmith, Takeda- san was born and raised in Niimi, Okayama Japan. After he graduated from university in Tokyo, he returned to his hometown to succeed his father as a master blacksmith for Takeda Hamono. Since 1985 he has strived and studied to produce the very best hand-forged blades and tools. Each blade is a unique work of art and has a certain presence. Forging knives, axes, hatchets, sickles and scythes - it seems nothing is out of the question for Takeda-san.
