Traditional Forge-smith, Craftsman, Takeshi Saji was born in 1948 in another knife City, Takefu of Fukui Prefecture, which is famous for 700 years history of the Echizen Uchi-Hamono (Hammer Forged Knives). After graduating junior high-school, he has learned basic forging process and technique for 3 years at the local Blacksmith Training School. He has then engaged in knife making at the age of 18 under the strict supervision of his master father, Harukichi Saji, the second generation. At the age of 30, he was told by his master that there is nothing more to teach him, and allowed to make his own knives as a succession of the third generation.
In 1992, he was certified “Traditional Craftsmen” by M.I.T.I. With his over 45 years of knife making experience, technique and unique idea design, his original and traditional forged custom knives are well recognized in Japanese market, and now he is one of most well-known and popular Forge-Craftsmen from Takefu City.
