[SET] Tojiro DP Hammered Gyuto + Petty
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
✔ The golden standard of Japanese steels - VG-10 stainless steel [60 HRC hardness]
✔ The most multi-purpose knife shape, then multiply it by 2 (gyuto & petty).
✔ Rustic kuro-uchi (black) blade finish with visible traces of the hammer (tsuchime).
✔ Traditional Japanese magnolia handle (round shape).
✔ Have the knives forged by the blacksmiths of Tojiro, one of the largest and most known smitheries in Japan.
Well, we could argue that you get a set of the two best price-performance Japanese knives.
Gyuto is the most all-round knife shape in the world. It’s not a coincidence that the shape got the name “The Chef’s knife”. If you are in need of a knife that can tackle all the tasks in your kitchen, you should definitely consider gyuto knives. Like all gyuto's (Chef's knives), it's a general purpose knife for all kinds of tasks. Due to its curved belly, it will do best at rocking and push-pull cutting moves, but not so much at chopping. It is quite a lightweight knife at 145g (5.1 oz).
Petty is the small version of the gyuto. Used for all these smaller tasks where gyuto feels too big and clumsy.
Tojiro DP Hammered collection
Tojiro DP Hammered collection is a new budget superstar from the hands of Tojiro's blacksmiths. Tojiro's secret recipe of hardening VG-10 steel doesn't disappoint with their new line of hammered kuro-uchi knives either. The knives are very sharp out-of-the-box and ready to make some (precise) damage to the food you're about to prepare, either using the knife in the professional kitchen or at home.
Tojiro fitted a traditional Japanese D-shaped-handle made of magnolia wood with a plastic ferrule. Nothing fancy here, but does the job just fine and keeps the overall weight of the knife low.
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers. They are renowned across Japan and internationally for their top-quality knives for a reasonable price. Tojiro's focus on advanced technologies, together with their insatiable dedication for constant improvements of their knives and materials, makes Tojiro's knives a must-have in any kitchen.
