A professional kitchen knife made using a special Tojiro "know how" method, which allows the knife maximum flexibility. It has an extremely narrow and thin blade that stays sharp for a very long time. This is a very flexible, delicate and precise kitchen knife. The handle is made of stainless steel with a texture Tojiro named “tornado pattern” that prevents wet or greasy hand from slipping off. It is designed primarily for cutting meat (ham).
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers, with headquarters in Niigata. 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. The company is divided into two sections: Tojiro Factory and more recent Tojiro Atelier, the latter dedicated to producing elaborate custom-made knives. Visitors are welcome to visit both spaces and experience the knife manufacturing process (with all its sounds and smells) firsthand by observing the workflow from a raised catwalk.
