He's from Takefu, but not the knife village. The single bevels at the booth were made by the other guy and they're made in Seki. He said some of those lines are discontinued but I forget which specifically.You should definitely check him out. Fit and finish is top tier and prices are reasonable. There was a bit of a language barrier, but the blacksmith was in the booth and I was able to talk to him a bit. He has been at the show for at least 2 years and I hope to see him again next year.
I'll post what I have when I get home. I was told the double beveled gyutos, pettys, and such were available direct. He didn't tell me anything about some being discontinued.Curious how to order knife from Takeshi iwai. Is that possible let me know the website or contact details. Thanks so much.
He told us that only after we noticed a few of them were warped or had recurve. He said the migaki were discontinued.I'll post what I have when I get home. I was told the double beveled gyutos, pettys, and such were available direct. He didn't tell me anything about some being discontinued.
