He has then engaged in knife making at the age of 18 under the strict supervision of his master & father, Harukichi Saji, the second generation. At the age of 30, he was told by his master that there is nothing more to teach him, and allowed to make his own knives as a succession of the third generation. In 1992, he was certified gTraditional Craftsmenh by M.I.T.I. 

 
With his over 45 years of knife making experience, technique and unique idea&design, his original and traditional forged custom knives are well recognized in Japanese market, and now he is one of the most well-known and popular Forge-Craftsmen ifrom Takefu City
