Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Tojiro Gyuto Damascus in 270mm (10.6") blade length is for those chefs and home cooks that are not afraid of using large knives. Larger knife means more real-estate, so it will stay sharp longer simply because there is more edge to utilize. Longer blade also helps us with slicing larger pieces of meat and fish. We only recommend a knife this size to users with a large workspace and a big cutting board.
The excellent VG-10 steel with the hardness of 61 HRC is clad into 62 layers of softer stainless steel with the Damascus pattern, making every knife a unique looking piece.
The blade extends into a traditional Japanese round Wa handle made of magnolia wood with a buffalo horn ferrule. The handle has an emphasized angle for a better grip, which makes it more suitable for right-handed users.
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.
