Takeda hamono Damascus!?

Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:12 pm

So I've been buying takeda knives for a while. And I recently purchased a new one. The owner at my knife shop went to work with takeda for the summer and came back with 2 of the same interesting knives. I was looking around for a deba or smaller gyuto and he showed me them. He told me takeda made them about 25 years ago testing out damascus but never had a use for them so kept them sitting around than gave them to him as a gift. He polished the blade so I could see the Damascus and it looks nice and feels like a takeda knife. I have pictures but it's not letting me use them cuz they're to large. As for the symbols he took away the first two and put a second heart. So instead of the location heart than his name it was a heart his name and another heart. So I am just wondering if anyone has any information on this and the knife. Thank you

A kuroichi/Damascus Tiger stripe looking pattern would be sweet
