Saji is a blacksmith from Takefu city, Fukui Prefecture, Japan. Born in 1948.
The same knife village as Hideo Kitaoka, Nao Yamamoto, Kato, Kurosaki and many more.

If you haven't heard of Saji before ............ you must not know much about Japanese knives or new to them.
Saji is the poster boy of elite Japanese knives. 
Not many match his style, skill and quality.
After a quick internet search you will notice a lot "sold out" signs over his work.
This is for good reason, highly regarded knives that scream luxury, skill and class.

Takeshi Saji knives are hard to get and every harder to keep in stock.

*Awarded Traditional Master Craftsman in '92 by the Japanese “Ministry of International Trade & Industry.

About the steel: Blue#2 is regarded as one of the best carbon steels used in knife making. "Rainbow" Damascus clad.

About the handle: Dessert Ironwood western style with mosaic pin.

Leigh's 2 cents: Not many makers match Saji for quality or fame. 
This knife has crazy cool colors in the cladding.
Even Saji's knife boxes are better than the rest..........Very impressive work.

Hi my name is Leigh, and I’m a chef from Newcastle Australia.

I’ve been cooking professionally for around 18 years in some of Australia’s top restaurants. (Currently cooking at Signal Box) 

I’ve created a small collection of high-quality Japanese Knives and Chef Knives that I recommend.
Basically, if I wouldn’t use it professionally then I don’t sell it! Read More
