Tojiro Santoku Knife is the one you’ve always been looking for to become your most versatile knife forever. Japanese word “Santoku” literally means “three virtues” or “three uses”. Santoku knife is a Japanese knife designed for three purposes at once: slicing, dicing and mincing, e.g. for vegetables, fish and meat. Santoku knives are exceptionally versatile. Tojiro Santoku Knife has a straight edge and a straight dull back that curves towards the edge at the end. It gives the most control, because the dull back edge is made to be held by fingers.
Tojiro Santoku Knife is shorter, lighter, thinner, and more hardened (to compensate for thinness) than a traditional Western chef's knife. It’s excessively well-balanced; blade and handle are designed to work in harmony by matching the blade's width and weight to the weight of the handle.
Tojiro factory is located in Niigata prefecture, former province Tsubame-Sanjo, that used to be a famous Japanese sword producing district for centuries. The technique of making best quality blade was improved through many generations. Now it has transformed to cutlery manufacturing technique that produces superiorly sharp and durable Tojiro knives to be loved and admired by chefs from all over the world. The sharpness without compromise comes together with the easiness of care in Tojiro cutlery. Only the highest standards steel is used for the blades.
Tojiro Santoku Knife’s blade is made from high-speed steel that is typically used power-saw blades and drill bits. It can withstand higher temperatures without losing its hardness. It’s practically never used for Japanese kitchen knives because of the costs of this technology. World famous maker Tojiro is able to offer high-speed steel blades at a reasonable price. The handle is made from black laminated eco wood with three powerful tacks that prevent blade from slippery for the long time.
