Product detail

The TAMAHAGANE brand has established itself in Slovakia in record time. This is mainly due to the popular San Tsubame line, which became the best-selling item of the Nippon Knives shortly after the introduction. The exclusive San Kyoto series also gained its clientele. As a result, Tamahagane has started sending its professional series Take to Slovakia. These knives are all-metal knives that contain all the typical features of the TAMAHAGANE brand. The blade is three-layer, and its core is made of VG-5 steel. It is protected on the sides by softer steel SUS 410. The thickness of the blade has been reduced from 20 mm to 2 mm by multiple rolling. This process ensures the removal of unwanted impurities and thus a hardness of up to 61 HRC. The blade is symmetrical in a "V" shape. When shaping the handle, the creator was inspired by one of the most important plants in the Far East. It is made of 18/8 stainless steel and resembles bamboo. And that is why the name is Take, which in Japanese means bamboo. It is considered a symbol of purity and genuineness. The handle is not only aesthetic but also exemplary ergonomic. Just as bamboo brings happiness, we believe that Take knives will also bring happiness to you.

About producer


Tamahagane is the designation of first-class steel, which was primarily intended for the production of the highest quality swords of Japanese samurai. Only real katanas boasted tamahagane steel blades. The reason was the high price, which corresponded not only to uncompromising quality, but also to a demanding production method.

Tamahagane /tama = gem, hagane = steel/ is produced in Tatara clay "baths" with dimensions of 1200x3700x1200mm. Tatara is gradually layered with iron ore sand /10t/ and charcoal /12t/. After 72 hours of burning, a Kera "steel flower" weighing about 2.3 tons is created. It contains 3 products with different carbon content. Hocho-tetsu is a softer steel with a lower carbon content, while Nabe-gane and Tamahagane contain 1-1.5% carbon, which guarantees their high hardness. Only about 1t of tamahagane is obtained from the entire production cycle. Today, only one steel mills in Japan produce tamahagane steel in this traditional way, and only once a year.

The manufacturer of exclusive kitchen knives from the city of Tsubame, located on the northern coast of Niigata prefecture, borrowed the name tamahagane for its products. However, the Japanese strictly adhere to traditions and moral obligations, so Mr.Kataoka constructs its knives according to proven old recipes.
