Availability: Normally ships the same day


Echizen Blacksmith, Takeshi Saji is the leading knife maker in Takefu City, another historical knife making city in Japan. Using his ingenious ideas and traditional methods, Master Saji creates unique Hunting and Outdoors Knives that are mightily powerful.

The TS-550 Smart Hunter is a neat, clean design and features the same excellent fit & finish as the knives in the Saji Classic and Practical Hunting Knife collections. As you can see, Takeshi Saji’s other knife collections have a more Traditional Japanese “Wa” style and a more 'wild' finish, which makes this knife even more special.

Takeshi Saji has over 50 years of experience with hammer forging. His dedication and hard work have resulted in a custom, high grade, traditional hammer forged Hunting knife with a classic, smart design. We are proud to introduce and offer the TS-550 Smart Hunter to our customers.

The TS-550 has a Tough and Cool appearance, with a Grayish VG-10 blade core and outer cladding layers of forge laminated Nickel-Stainless Damascus steel. The shinning white/silver Nickel Steel layers have a vivid, aggressive, yet beautiful appearance. The Drop Point Blade has a very practical, traditional Japanese Hamaguri-ba (Convex) blade grind and has been superbly matched with a luxurious, hand contoured Desert Ironwood Handle. The knife also features a full tang construction, a Brass Guard / Hilt, stainless steel handle pins / rivets and a tubular brass lanyard hole. A Brown Leather sheath, with belt loop, is also included.

For serious, wild, smart hunters, this is the Masterpiece of Master Saji’s Practical Hunting Knife collection.
