After touching up the factory edge on a stone a bit, it is now crazy sharp and has held it's edge well with just minimal touch upd with my honing rod.

I'll update this review as time passes, but for now, I'll go over the basics.

I'm a chef, and I've used pretty much almost every brand of knife that's recommended or popular. This includes but is not limited to Shun (basic, premier, ken onion, Henckles, Messermeister, Cozzini, Togiharu, Kikuichi, Mac, Global, Wusthof, and probably a few more. I found out about Tojiro brand knives from intense research into knives following the theft of my knife kit and wanting a cheaper alternative to the Shun Premiers I was using previously.

Now, before I expand on this, let me preface the review with Chef's do not make a lot of money. In fact, we get straight nothing when it comes to being paid fairly for skilled labor. And we rarely make tips. If we spend money (that's not on alcohol or drugs) it's on our shoes and knives; the two things we use the most. I know chef's who swear by German steel, and I know chef's that swear by Japanese steel. They are very different, as German steel tends to be thicker and heavier, requiring less effort than a Japanese knife. I'm more of a fan of Japanese knives, so right away the effectiveness of your knife is going to be contingent on your style.

But holy hell this knife is sharp.

At the time I purchased it, this knife was 70 bucks with shipping, less then half for my Shun Premier I mentioned earlier. I took it out of the box and I didn't think much of it at first. It's aesthetically very run of the mill, which I was fine with, since it's my primary tool for my profession. I went about opening a little plastic bag with my new fish bone tweezers in it with this knife and as I was talking to my girlfriend I accidentally cut open the bag when I wasn't paying attention.

I did not purchase this product off of Amazon but the knife is lying to my left. That said, this review is only about the knife. I'm no chef but I've been using this knife at work for almost two months now.

Out of the box: Very sharp (yes, it will shave armhair and glide through paper). Fit and finish issues around the handle, particularly behind the bolster and along the handle. Pretty much where the handle meets the tang. This in no way affects its performance.

This is a cladded stainless knife with a VG-10 core sandwiched between softer stainless. Sharpens easily and holds its edge well. If you prefer a lighter knife, this one may not be for you as the handle is a little hefty. I have handled the Tojiro DP 240mm wa-gyuto (same knife, Japanese-style handle, ho wood and plastic ferrule I think...) and it is much lighter. Despite the longer handle, I feel a pinch grip is more comfortable with the wa-gyuto. The 240mm length is nice to have, especially when tackling multiple heads of lettuce, cabbage, or hakusai (nappa, chinese cabbage, whatever you wanna call it). If you plan on using this knife at home or in a cramped kitchen, you may want to consider a 210mm. Personally, I'd go with the 240mm and then buy another knife or two for other specific tasks rather than rely on one knife for everything.

All in all, I'm very satisfied with the knife. When it comes to Japanese knives, it's nothing fancy but you get what you pay for. What you're paying for is a no-nonsense, hell of a deal that is suitable for professional use. If you're avid about maintaining your own knives, doing so with this blade should be a breeze.

You won't be regret buy this knife, I did compare to other brand Shun, Wusthof, etc, but finally I found Tojiro DP performs as well as those twice the price (Shun,Henckles).
I bought also a 4000 grit and 8000 grit (King Gold Stone) japanese waterstone make my Tojiro DP like razor cut.
I recommend Tojiro DP for anyone and buy from seller Japan to you (location in New York)good service & fast shipping.

I've owned this knife for a couple years and it's fantastic for the money. Perfect entry level knife into Japanese steel that you'll still be able to use and appreciate forever. Quite sharp out of the box, responds great to light steeling on a ceramic rod and becomes scary sharp done properly on stones, at least and especially for the money and if you're new to top level knives. I still don't sharpen myself, but a friend took this to stones for me a year and change ago and it held a stupid silly sharp edge for probably 7 months of 4 times + a week use at home. Mine is still very sharp at this point, over a year after, but it can certainly use a touch up.

Works well for all styles of cutting and grips. It's pretty no nonsense and no frills, but again, this is a bargain. At about $80 with free shipping this is an exceptional deal, I bought mine for $100 with free shipping from Chef Knives to Go and that is an already really good price.

This comes highly recommended from everybody and there's a reason for it. This or a Fujiwara FKM or a Richmond Artifex are probably your best bet to jump into high quality knives of any origin, especially and obviously Japanese. The last I know only by research and reputation, but the first two from use.

I give this 5 stars at this price. Overall it's probably a 4 star knife though. The fit and finish is good, but not perfect. Nothing that will effect performance, but aesthetically you can get some rough edges on the handle by the top of the spine and the rivets. It's a tad heavy as well, but very well balanced. All easily forgivable for the performance at this price point though.
