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 layers 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 165mm Santoku is an excellent hybrid knife; it doubles as a vegetable slicer or a chef knife.
Blade length: 170mm
Overall length: 300mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.8mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
i love how this thing looks,feels great in my hand. sadly i could only give 4 stars,since it doesn’t hold up to the DP chefs knife.

Nice Knife,Nice bang for the buck
Great all purpose knife that holds an edge and comes out every time I hit the kitchen,low maintenance and holds an edge like a razor.
I shopped knives for 2 years,not sure what I wanted until I found Chef Knives To Go. I called the help desk for advice,they said I’d be very happy with this knife. Out of the box it cut paper by pushing straight down,no slicing action,it also shave hair off my arm. I’ll never go back to henkels and the like. I am a bit afraid of its sharpness :)p.s. now I need to replace the rest of my knives. Also,I ordered 4 days ago,during xmas season and it already arrived. These guys are great!
I didn’t think a knife this price would really come razor sharp,but it did. Shaved the hair right off my arm. Sweet.....
Excellent knife at less cost. Very sharp right out of the box. My wife’s favorite.

Great knife. Thin,sharp,nimble. I have used it for about a week straight prepping a very busy kitchen. Honed with ceramic a handfull of times and still super sharp. A little lighter than I expected.

This is my first Japanese knife. I am very impressed with the quality and value. So glad I did not go the mainstream route.
