Forged by Shosui Takeda of Takeda Hamono, in Okayama Japan. This vintage Yanagiba was forged in 2008 in memory of an old mate of Takeda’s from Germany. In 2015, we visited Takeda’s workshop and stumbled upon this knife and 14 other knives, but all were in pretty bad condition from years of sitting around in the workshop not being taken care of. After asking, Takeda allowed us to re-finish this Yanagiba, so we took it to the sharpener.
