Hello,
I have been looking at your web-site for a few years. I admire your huge selection. I have been looking at the Takeda Kiritsuke classic 240. I have finally saved enough for it, but was wondering your thoughts on the knife? Can you give me specific measurements on the knife since they vary do to being hand made? Anything info you can give me will greatly be appreciate.
Thank you for time,
Scott

Hi Scott,

I love Takeda's knives. They're iconic and super popular. Each one is different but I just pulled one off the shelf and here are the specs.

Length: 240mm
Height:51mm
Thickness at spine: 2.8mm

Takeda seems to be one of those knives I have never seen someone say they didn't like either here or in any other forum I have seen them talked about in. I think it would be safe to say that for the money you will most likely love the knife. Plus the Takeda Classic Kiritsuke looks like an awesome and beautiful knife. Good choice! ;)

LOL! OK, so maybe there was one but I forgot it. :P

Then I will say more accurately, by and large Takedas are very loved knives... unless you're crazy like Melampus... ;) lol

....just do keep in mind that the Kiritsuke, although very sexy, has a very flat edge profile. If you almost solely push cut, this isn't a bad thing. If you like to rock....maybe not so much.
