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 37 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 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
Blade Thickness 2mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
This knife is spectacular. The handle is really comfortable,the blade is well-balanced,and it basically feels like I’m cutting through butter,regardless of what I’m actually cutting.

I bought this knife after having an excellent experience with the matching Nakiri. I like the feel of the knife in my hand,its sharpness,the fit of the handle in my grasp,the Damascus finish that is now getting a little abraded,the pleasure of slicing through things with precision and ease,and the sense of having a tool that is everything I wanted it to be for a relatively small price.

I recently got the Tojiro Gyuto. I am reasonably happy with it. But it isn’t as sharp out of the box as my Moritaka Nakiri or my $49 Tojiro Santoku (with the wooden handle).
I may just need to get it professionally sharpened.
The night I took it out of the box,my dinner prep included slicing limes,trimming Thai basil leaves off the stem and halving miniature heads of a baby bok choy cousin. This knife was great for all of these. It balances perfectly in my hand (and I am anything but petite). It is love at first slice!
This is a beautiful knife with great handle. However,it’s not really sharp out of the box.
Absolutely spectacular knife,especially for the price. Balanced,razor sharp out of the box,easily sharpened--but in a non-commercial setting you may get a solid 9 months until sharpening becomes necessary since it’s very hard. This was a huge upgrade from a Global. I’ve used a friend’s Misonos (top rated,$300 knives),and I cannot discern a difference.
purchased 2 as gifts for family and gave a demonstration of comparison between there current knifes and new. Brothers comments "Its like cutting butter"
I was looking for a bang for the buck deal on a Japanese steel knife. The very much exceeds my expectations. This is a beautiful knife. This is a very sharp knife. This knife is very well crafted and feels magical in your hand.
