There are famous blacksmiths, and then there's Terukazu Takamura. Forging out of Echizen, Takamura Hamono is known for creating masterpieces in every sense of the word and without skimping on any detail. Any Takamura knife, at any price point, is attractive and a great performer. Just ask René Redzepi, 3-star Michelin chef of the world famous Noma. I mean you can ask Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana if you can't find René, he uses them too.

Ahhh the Chromax line. Chances are you've heard of it, and yet it hasn't been out for that long. So why the hype? Well despite being the equivalent of the new kid on the block, this steel is capable of absolutely remarkable characteristics despite it being a little more obscure in the knife world. It is treated to HRC 64-65 which means it has excellent edge retention. It feels hardier then its somewhat similar R2 steel sister, and is much less reactive than a carbon steel knife. Like any other Takamura, this is a laser thin grind with a look and performance feel similar to a stainless clad Aogami Super kitchen knife. The hand-hammered finish is a nice touch on what is already an incredibly reasonably priced knife with such honour roll type accolades.

    Great value and sale price


    Great knife. Comfortable if you like western handles, laser beam sharp and very thin. Great slicer. And got a free strop with order. Excellent seller and a solid product. A lot of knife for the money, in a small package.


    If you’re between this and the R2 all I can say that this (at the time I have spent 75$) is worth it in every way.

    I have the R2 gyuto 210mm and love it but the 130mm chromax petty performs just as well in my eyes.

    If you’re like me get the r2 gyuto and this petty and a decent cheap bread knife. It’s all you need.
