Nenohi Sakimaru Takobiki
Traditionally the Takobiki is a square ended blade used for slicing octopus, hence the Tako in the name. However, the Nenohi Takobiki features a rounded tip (sakimaru) and it would be a shame to only use it on cephalopods. Use on any occasion you need to show off to friends or kitchen colleagues while slicing delicious morsels of sashimi.
This Nenohi blade is Sakai forged white carbon steel finished with a long, slender ebony handle. Blade length 270mm.
Wooden saya included.
Extremely limited. Only 2 knives available.
"Customers looking for genuinely good knives always come to us ... We usually do not take the cost into consideration when we develop a new product. When makers develop a new product, they usually set the price first, then, develop a knife meeting the set price. We do totally the opposite. We develop a knife first, the best knife we can create without thinking of the cost, then, set the price which meets the newly developed knife. That’s why our knives are not cheap - the only downside of our knives." Yusuke Sawada president of Nenohi
