Takeshi Saji

Mr. Asanuma TA-3 Damascus Bowie Knife "JUMA-TWO-TONE Custom Handle"

Availability: Normally ships the same day


The famous Echizen Forge Smith Takeshi Saji is now 74 years old. During his long career, he has made a great and lasting impact upon the next generation of young Echizen forge smiths and craftsmen.


In recent years, a large number of young forge smiths and craftsmen have decided to work as knife makers in Echizen City (Takefu City), Fukui Prefecture. Many of them were attracted to Echizen because of the "Takefu Knife Village" cooperative, which was founded by Master Saji and several other veteran knife makers to train and support the next generation of forge smiths and craftsmen. We believe the soul, spirit and skills of these experienced forge smiths and craftsmen will continue to be handed down to these future generations of craftspeople over the coming decades, so a wide selection of unique and attractive traditional Echizen forged knives should be available for many years to come.


Recently, at the Seki Outdoor Knife Show, we met a passionate young forge smith called Mr. Asanuma, who is one of Master Takeshi Saji’s apprentices.
