I wonder if anyone has a Takeda cleaver ? any reviews or sharing? :)))
Any particular questions? I have a "small" AS classic that I could give my 2cents on. I'm still breaking it in, but Ive used it enough to give some first impressions.
And some photos would be great;)

Re: Takeda owners only

We have a Takeda AS gyuto large 270

The height of the Takeda makes it a Cleaver/ Santoku/ Gyuto hydrid, the process of just using it make me happy. And the reactivity of the knife is amazing too🤣

Wow!!! Did you neutralize with baking soda afterwards or did you let the BKF start a gray patina?
My friend,

I use BKF to clean and then rinse with a generous amount of tape water. It’s been a day and, I haven’t seen a patina yet.. is the grey patina supposed to form soon?

Re: [ Photos ] Rust or Patina ? Or ...?

Shall I use "baking" soda (sodium bicarbonate) or "washing soda" (sodium carbonate) ?

Some tutorials say A and some say B

[ Photos ] Rust or Patina ? Or ...?

Hi guys, I bought a Takeda from a fellow collector. I am new to carbon steel world.

Bar Keeper's Friend good on Aogami Super?

I am trying to polish my Takeda Aogami Super.

It has a slight little yellowish patina ( /rust?) on it.

Is " Bar Keeper's Friend " good for this job? or do I NEED professional knife products for this?

Thanks :lol:
