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. The 120mm Petty knife can be used to peel larger fruits and vegetables or even as a small slicer for meats like roasted pork tenderloins or chicken breasts. These knives are known for their superior performance for the price.
Blade length: 120mm
Overall length: 231mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.6mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
Takes a wicked edge and cuts great. No rust issues at all and it will be used for cutting veggies and left wet.
Relatively thin so a bit of flex in the blade.
Handle needs a bit of tweaking to be comfortable (sanding with a bit of wet/dry).
A great knife for the price.
super sharp knife,versatile,perfect length,comfortable handle,awesome packaging! a must have for all pastry chefs!
Like all my Tojiros,very sharp out of the box and f&f are fine. Peels anything and my wife uses it whenever she needs a knife of any size--go figure? I wash & dry it and all my other knives when I finish using them.
Truly a bargain.

I’ve only had it a week or so. The blade is razor sharp - I suspect one could shave with it. Very pleased with it.

What is up with other person saying "Relatively thin *** flex in the blade" It is not thin nor there is any flex,the knife is perfect. Very sharp.
This is my second Tojiro dp knife. The fit and finish is flawless on the knife I recieved. The handles are pretty square on my Tojiro’s so a little work with some sandpaper can shape them to your liking if it bothers you. I haven’t touched mine. The knife was fairly sharp however I did a little thinning and polished up the edge and this really is now my new favorite knife. It definately will support and hold a keen edge. 5 stars for a great knife at a awesome price.
This is just my favorite thing in the world right now. Probably the most versatile,sharp,and easy-to-use blade I’ve held in my hand. The edge retention is very impressive as well as being user friendly. Great knife and this website gives the absolute best price!
