    And it just wears off after a while anyway. The lone takeda left in my blocks now has pretty much a flat gray finish from being cleaned with Bar Keeper's Friend so many times.

    Is there any way to find out what retailer the OP was mentioning?

    Pretty sure it's CKtG. The knife is discussed in his forum.

    +1 on that. His aogami super takes the best edge of any steel I've used.

    I can't imagine Takeda making a shiny anything, that man don't do bling.

    I saw that mentioned, but the OP originally said it wasn't... Or maybe I'm just missing something. I dunno, I'm kinda out of it today...

    I would recommend never putting bar keepers friend on your knives.

    So don't put it on your knives. It won't hurt my feelings. Did you notice another post here today that mentions pro Japanese chefs clean their knives with scouring powder all the time? Takeda's finish doesn't patina worth a hoot and you need to clean them someway.

    Hey guys,
    I simply wouldn't make mention of anything going on over at cktg for multiple reasons, the least of which is that i don't hang out over there so wouldn't know anything that's happening anyways.
    The vendor mentioned is Knifewear.
    And i clean my knives with BKF all the time.
