Some New Japanese Knives at Jende Industries

November 23, 2016

We’ve been slowly adding to our knife line, and have recently added several Japanese knives, including some Gyutos, Santokus, Yanagis, Debas, and Tacobikis. These are all high quality blades, using Aogami Super Blue, Shirogami White, and VG-10 Steels, and come with and without damascus patterns. Our favorite to look at, by far is the Sakimarutako by Tanaka Kazuyuki, which is an octopus knife with a rounded samurai sword tip instead of the usual squared off tip of conventional takobiki blades. It features a Damascus Clad VG-10 core with  and ebony octagon handle and horn ferrule. kiritsukegata-takohiki-6

We also have a traditional Santoku by Maruyoshi, featuring Aogami Super Blue steel with a walnut octagon handle.

If you’re in the market for a Gyuto, we have 180mm and 210mm Gyutos by Shiro Kamo. Both of these knives feature damascus clad VG-10 core steel with a red sandalwood handle.
