Mr. Katayama apprenticed with the famous Echizen Forge Smith Takeshi Saji for many years. But he now runs his own workshop and is currently trying to make his own unique style of traditional forged knives, using all his passion, skill and experience.
Ever since he started working with Takeshi Saji, he has dreamed of becoming a custom knife maker with a his own unique style and ideas for traditional forged knives. Now, after many years of hard work and studying, his dream is becoming a reality.
Mr. Katayama believes the user’s needs and the user’s experience are very important, so he carefully considers them when he is designing and making his knives.
One of his special skills and great advantages is being able to design and handcraft his own custom handles, all by himself.
We look forward to seeing and introducing more of his distinctive handmade custom knives in the future, as he further develops his own creative ideas and unique style.
