About Takeshi Saji - Hailing from Takefu Knife Village, Takeshi Saji started learning to work the forge under his father in 1966 at the age of 16. Since he was young, he always wanted to be a blacksmith. The full successor to his master at the age of 30, he is a third-generation blacksmith in his family. Saji-san is one of the founding members of Takefu Knife Village. He loves a challenge and is always looking for new technology and techniques. Take Rainbow Damascus, for instance. The name Rainbow comes from the fact that this steel is made from layers of stainless steel laminated with alternating layers of bronze, copper, and brass.
