    Takefu steel.

    Well it is official. Myself and Daniel at EE are the North American distributors for Takefu steel. right now we have V-toku solid material, sg2 solid, some sg2 suminagashi in 15 and 30 layer. there are several thicknesses. I believe they are 2.8, 3, 3.5, and four mm. The suminagashi will need to be forged to have any pattern to it, other wise ther will be straight lines. Forging also gives a bigger knife from the same material.

    sizes and prices can be had from EE, email is the best way as Daniel is a little short handed at the moment. I'll also post prices here soon.

    Congrats on the new venture Bill, sounds exciting

    Will you be using solid sg-2 to make monosteel blades? Or will you use some other cladding?

    Any of the blades you're bringing down under made with Takefu steel?

    Sounds like I'll need to be adding another knife to my wish list...

    Probably won't make any solid sg2 knives but will have at least two suminagashi blades there.
