Considered to be one of the best lines as an introduction to Japanese knives, the DP series is constructed with a core of VG-10 stainless steel sandwiched between a layer of softer stainless for ease of sharpening. This line is constructed with a Black Stamina wood handle and stainless steel bolster. These knives are known for their superior performance for the price. The 180mm Gyuto (F-807) is a great size for smaller hands or just smaller tasks in general. This knife is excellent at slicing, dicing, or chopping small amounts of food.
Blade length: 180mm
Overall length: 305mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.7mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
Good knife overall. I bought it for a gift,and although it’s too small for me,it came sharp and does the job for the person intended. I was thinking about the Santoku,but I feel this shape is more useful.

The most popular knife in the kitchen! Excellent value,sharp right out of the box,a pleasure to use
Great little knife. Very sharp edge out of the box,and the handle is much better than I expected after hearing that the handles on the DP line are too boxy. This is a good length if you want a nice agile knife with the shape of a gyuto but the size of a utility knife. I would definitely consider buying another knife from this series in the future.
Service was excellent as well,and shipping was very fast.
Great out of the box but needs to be sharpened. It has a weight to it at first which turns into being helpful with the heavier prep which it is sometimes meant for(pumpkin.) Handle is comfortable but not amazing. Its great for working in small spaces.
Shipping was amazingly fast and allowed me to get it just in time for someones birthday.
Amazingly sharp right out of the case. I let it go while resting it on a tomato and it fell right through! The knife is also very comfortable in my hand for periods of time.
F&F is just ok but it’s also not the most expensive knife. After reading reviews I expected a little more sharpness ootb but after I opened it up there was no problem with getting a nice edge on it. A little lighter than expected but will make for a good little line knife where space is limited.

I admit to being somewhat skeptical because of the price,as we have some very expensive top of the line knives in our kitchen. This equals the others’ performance,and I mean solidly equals. It sharpens easily,and holds an edge. We have budgeted for replacing about 15 knives next year. We’re going with Tojiro. Sometimes there are real values in this world. Thank you Tojiro. I do feel it’s unfair to call this "entry level" or a "good introduction" because this is the real deal--what I’ve come to expect from the fin Japanese artisans.
