Tojiro is one of the largest Japanese knife brands. This innovative brand has won several design awards. Traditional Japanese techniques are combined with modern production methods. The Tojiro kitchen knives are razor-sharp and very durable.
It’s always a challenge finding the right balance between hardness (sharp, but brittle and less stainless) and smoothness (less sharp and brittle, but more stainless). Tojiro has chosen for a multi-layered construction. The VG10 steel core is surrounded by 13-chrome steel. This makes for a unique combination of hardness and makes it far better resistant against rust! Way better than a regular carbon steel knife.
The handle is made of lightweight oak and is shaped in the traditional Japanese D-shape. Basically this means it is suited for right-handed use, but the a-symmetry does not bother for left-handed users.
|Right or left-handed||right-handed|
|Type of edge||plain edge|
