Takamura SG2 Migaki 130mm Petty with Western Handle

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 honor roll type accolades.

my new favorite

Amazing little knife! I typically work with a 210mm gyuto but was pleased to do all my dinner prep today with this little petty. The taller heel height lends itself to board work. Not a full replacement for a larger knife but will be great as a lunch/snack knife!
