Among the Japanese blacksmiths, I would like to introduce TAKUMI that I would like to recommend especially to you.
Redorca is the name of Yoshihiko Akitomo's knife brand. It is one of the famous blacksmiths in Japan.
His knife is very high quality because it is made by forging Katana called "Koubuse" among traditional forging methods in Japan.
However, the knives they make are often sold out due to the small number of productions.
Forged knives made by Redorca are made for practical use, and are especially recommended for people who use them in earnest.
