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.
