Are you referring to the thinness or the unique blade shape?

For the life of me, I cannot think of any knife that is Takeda esk in stainless....

Some that cut well, but not with the same profile.

This WillC nakiri has a grind very similar to a Takeda:

Gengetsu semi-stainless is the closest i can think of.

The Suisin IH line are super-thin, but are otherwise nothing like a Takeda.

I agree with Johnny; Will's nakiri is a dead ringer for a Takeda grind. Why are you thinking Takeda, specifically? I'm impressed with the two I have in my kitchen right now, but I'd take a Carter, personally, if you want the same look and crazy cutting performance.

They might be slightly thinner but will's looks pretty thin. The grind is exactly the same which is the unique part about Takeda style grinds and what makes them cut so well.

I will also agree w Lefty and suggest a Carter SFGZ. Thin, great cutter, stainless (mostly) and the grind does share some characteristics with Takedas.
