We know you probably come to our website to explore brands you've heard about elsewhere that are well established like Takeda, Nakagawa, TF and so forth. Well, it's time we build a reputation for ourselves by offering our own brand of knives, Tokushu brand, made by Tadafusa.
If you want a line of knives that offers easy to sharpen cutting edges and an increased competency when it comes to toughness thanks to its steel type, than you want our Blue #2 line. The cladding of these knives is stainless, but we still recommend you wipe the edge when the knife is not in use as blue #2 is reactive.
Our Blue #2 line all feature some incredibly high quality handles made by local craftsman in Sanjo, Japan. For the price, we are incredibly satisfied with the look, quality and feel of these handles. We dare you to find a better handle elsewhere at this value!
Some knife style definitions aren't worth reinventing, and this is the case with the 165mm santoku. Santoku translates to knife of three virtues [slice, dice, chop]. Though a santoku is suitable for just about anyone as a very multi-purpose knife, those that like to rock chop or have limited space in the kitchen will particularly enjoy this knife style.

Gave this to a close friend who had the worst knives in their house. Now we can enjoy making meals together. It feels good to work with. The handle is plain, but not uncomfortable. The blade is nicely shaped. Overall a very decent, balanced knife for 100 bucks. Right now it's crazy sharp, so no idea yet how it will be to resharpen.
Nice knife, very sharp, makes slicing and diceing a breeze.
This is the second time I have purchased this knife. First time was for my mom who loves it so much that she wanted one for her sister/my aunt as well. So, that is why I have purchased this knife again. My aunt loves it!
