The Japanese Lolita-style has many iterations in fashion, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever seen it cross over into cutlery. Two new “Lolita” blades made-to-order by fourth-generation Japanese blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka are being offered by Takumi Armory and they’re gorgeous.
The black Gothic-style “Juliette” has a butterfly-adorned blade etched with roses while the pink “Lappin” has hearts both etched and molded into the blade.
Given the prices, I’m sure the blades themselves are as sharp as they are pretty, but I’m not sure I’d have the heart to actually use them.
