This Tojiro Zen Black turning knife will always come in handy. You use it to shape your ingredients. From turning a courgette to removing the tips of carrots. The curved shape of the blade also makes it the perfect knife for peeling work. With a good turning knife you can work a lot faster!
Tojiro Zen Black blade
For knives there is always a compromise between hardness (sharp, but brittle and less stainless) and flexible (less sharp and less brittle, more stainless). Tojiro opted for a multi-layer construction. The core is made from VG10 steel surrounded by 13-chrome steel. This leaves you with a unique combination of hardness and a much higher corrosion-resistance than with carbon steel. The black oxidized finish of the blade makes the blade look amazing.
Tojiro Zen Black handle
The handle is made from light-weight dark-coloured chestnut wood. It is enhanced with a traditional Japanese D-shape. This is a right-handed knife, but left-handed users won't be bothered by this asymmetry.
Tojiro is one of the largest Japanese knife brands. This innovative brand has won numerous design awards. Traditional Japanese techniques are combined with modern production methods. The Tojiro kitchen knives are razor-sharp and very sustainable.
