Mr. Itou R-2 Custom Damascus Knives


Mr. Itou IT-650 Drop Point Utility Hunter, 3-1/4" or 3-1/4" R2 Damascus Blade, Premium Desert Ironwood or Maple wood Handle

Availability: Normally ships the same day


The Hottest Custom Knife Maker Mr. Itou produced his original custom Damascus blade using special powdered steel R-2.

We had so many good words from the users for the extremely sharp cutting and edge retention ability. The secret of this is the finest powdered steel R-2 blade and the repeated hammering forging process. 

Another secret is he uses a large water stone wheel with slow rotating to grind his blades, unlike the normal belt sander grinding. This will prevent over-heating the blade to ruin the proper hardness and its chemical characters.

Mr. Itou also sticks to rare and unique natural materials for the handles, sourced from all over the world. Each of his knives comes with hand contoured unique custom handle.

Mr. Itou is now 83 years old, and is slowing down his work for his age and health problem. We have recently received some knives collected from his production during 2023 - 2024 in time for this holiday season, so you have a chance to obtain his last works at 10% discount prices.
