Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
A professional kitchen knife made using a special Tojiro "know how" method, which allows the knife maximum flexibility. Extremely thin blade that stays sharp for a very long time. It is a very flexible, delicate and precise kitchen knife.
In addition to the aesthetic, the recesses/dimples on the blade also have a useful value, as the uneven surface creates air pockets between the food and the blade when cutting, which prevents the food from sticking to the knife. It is therefore ideal for cutting meat and raw fish such as salmon.
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.
