Product Description

Tojiro DP knives are made in the 'honwarikomi' method where a carbon steel plate is encased front, top, and back in stain-resistant steel. As a result, the cutting edge of the blade is as sharp and durable as a carbon steel knife, while the stain-resistant steel outer layer makes this knife very easy to maintain.Tojiro's honwarikomi knives use high-quality Swedish carbon steel and 13% chromium stain-resistant steel in their construction.

I've used lots of high quality knives over the years. Back when I had a restraurant I used Wustof Icon knives, which were beautiful. Pretty nice work knives, too. About the time that the Japanese knive craze it the US I got a set of Shun Classics. Loved the steel. Wasn't thrilled with the handles. A few years ago I developed chronic tendon pain in my right wrist and wanted a lighter main knive. I first bough a cheap santuko. It wasn't a bad knife but I missed the edge I could put on the Shuns. Enter the Tojiro, which I use for about 90% of my kitchen work.

The santuko is an excellent slicing knife with the same length belly (slicing edge) as an 8 inch chef's knife. The tip is shorter but for fine work I use a paring knife. No real loss for me on the blade length and the lower weight and more nimble handling make my wrist happy.

The edge comes nicely sharp from the factory, though as I learned with my Shuns that use the same blade steel, it's possible to put an even finer edge on the knife without sacrificing durability. That makes slicing even easier on my wrist. Be careful if you've not used sharp professional quality knives. It's very easy to cut yourself. A sharp knife is safer for an experienced cook because the cuts are way more predictable than with a dull knife. If you're not used to a good knife the speed with which it can cut can make for a bloody surprise.

The finish of the knife isn't up to that of the Shuns, let alone the Wustofs, which I consider functional art. It's pretty good. I'm not complaining, and for a price that is almost half of those knives I'm thrilled. $50 may seem like a lot to pay for a knife if all you've used are department store brands. For a well made knife of very high quality steel it's a steal.

This is a really good knife for the money. It comes hair shaving sharp and is made with a VG-10 steel core so it should stay sharp for a long time. Also the balance it great and it is made for a more comfortable right handed pinch grip but could be used left handed as well. The only drawback is there are some very minor cosmetic flaws but for this price range they can easily be looked over due to the other qualities and much lower price than comparable knives, (Shun, Mac, Masahiro, Global, etc.)

The only Cons are specifically:
1. Small imperfections near bolster on one side (picture included)
2. 1 very small bump on spine
3. 1 small indentation on spine

Cons # 2 & 3 were easily smoothed out using a Shapton 12000 grit waterstone and 3 minutes of work

I bought this knife because I have the Tojiro DP 8 inch chef knife. This one is crazy sharp as well. I do a lot of prep for my restaurant, and this knife is easy to maintain and keep razor sharp, and I mean RAZOR SHARP. I cut a lot of beef, slab bacon and chicken with this knife. This sharp knife helps me cut my prep time down by 30% at least. I get to go home sooner.

I have a Twin Henckels santoku as well. Just as sharp, but I like the balance of this knife better than the German steel, Henckels. I feel like the handle is a tad heavier with the Tojiro.

I bought this on Amazon and this knife was shipped from Japan. It took a little longer to receive than the chef knife I bought (on Amazon), only because the chef knife was in stock, locally.

The handle is no frills and I'm not certain as to its durability, but I am going to baby this knife as much as possible, because it takes care of me, as long as I take care of it.

The 8+" Tojiro chef and the santoku, get a lot of work done for me. I took out a lot of unnecessary knives from my knife bag because of these two knives!

This knife worked great until, after a few months of use, the knife broke in half away from the handle! I work as a sous-chef at a restaurant, and know how to take care of a knife, but this one is just not up to everyday use. And the seller's return policy offers no compensation for this kind of issue.

This is by far the best knife I own. I have 3 other tojiro knives I ordered immediately after receiving this one. The blade is razor sharp out of the box and cuts through most anything with laser precision. Like any good knife you need to take care of it. Hand wash and dry after use and a honing steel will keep the edge very nice. I highly recommend this knife. I have had wusthof knives my whole life and after trying a coworkers tojiro I came to the realization that there are great kitchen knives out there for less than 200$. Fit and finish can be a little rough around the bolster, but nothing that can't be sanded down in 5 minutes. Handle feels great and the blade is super strong. Great knife for any skill level. Just be careful of the blade..very sharp!!

My girlfriend gave me this knife for my birthday because I've been drooling for it for ages now and I must say this is hands down the best knife I've owned. The blade is super sharp and the divets really do help things like potatoes slide right off the blade as you are slicing them.
When she bought me this knife, she also bought me the Henckels Five Star and also Henckels Twin Cuisine to test out. I finally decided that I liked the balance and overall feel of this one the best. I don't have very large hands and this handle felt pretty much just right on this one. The other handles kinda had a bit too much girth making me fear that I wouldn't be able to grip the handle as well. For obvious reasons I wanted a sturdier feel so that I wouldn't have to be paranoid about slicing my finger.
If this is your first santoku, you might initially find the shape and cutting motions of the knife a bit odd as the shape of this knife isn't like an ordinary chef's knife. After a short while though I got used to it.
This knife is now my primary knife and I use it for cutting and slicing pretty much everything.
Have fun cooking!
