Japanese Chef’s Knife
Takamura Hana Damascus HSPS Santoku 16.5cmThe Hana series represents the best of Takamura Cutlery.

This lavish knife has a High Speed Powdered Steel (HSPS) core. High speed steel is the same remarkably hard material used to make drills and power saws that cut through other steel. It is also known as R2, which is a term that was coined by the steel manufacturer while Takamura was testing out different materials.

By processing it into powder form, Takamura Cutlery has been able to create a more ductile and flexible product. This knife redefines the meaning of sharpness and offers a taste of what is possible when traditional knife making methods and modern steel making technology are combined harmoniously.

The blade of the Hana series is said to be able to peel the skin of an apple without making a sound.

Echizen hammer forged knives are known to have a thick spine but thin edge, and by recreating this classic silhouette with HSPS, Takamura Cutlery has managed to produce exceptionally steady knives that slice through effortlessly. 

The santoku is a cross between a nakiri and gyuto, chef’s knife. It is a multipurpose knife that can cut meat, fish, vegetables and fruit.

Takamura HSPS Pro Honesuki 15cm

Echizen hammer forged knives are known to have a thick spine but thin edge, and by recreating this classic silhouette with HSPS, Takamura Cutlery has managed to produce exceptionally steady knives that slice through effortlessly.

We have renamed this series as Takamura HSPS Pro to differentiate it from the red handle knives. HSPS Pro has the signature core material, HSPS, but harder outer steel. The handle is made with a more superior wood that is typically not used for knife handles, and is compressed four times more and has double the layers. Takamura Cutlery created the HSPS Pro series with culinary professionals and serious cooks in mind. HSPS provides remarkable edge retention to minimize the frequency of sharpening.

This knife does not have the flexibility of a typical Western boning knife but its sharp, pointed tip helps you ride the blade along bones, cartilage and joints to separate different cuts of meat.
