The Tojiro DP series is widely considered to be one of the premier introductory Japanese knife lines available. That said, without qualification, it is also one of the most popular Japanese knife brands which speaks to the remarkably high level of performance delivered for a relatively modest price. Indeed, many savvy cooks turn to the DP series when exploring new patterns. The formidable breadth of offerings in this line, combined with a tremendous application of stainless VG-10, make Tojiro DP knives a natural choice for collection expansion and technique development.
The Birdís Beak pattern on this 70mm paring knife excels at in-hand peeling applications. Many professional cooks love this design as it allows one to tourne vegetables, a staple technique in French cuisine, with unparalleled ease. The Stamina Wood handle is perfectly sized and contoured for maneuverability and is completely flush with the bolster and rivets. Incredibly light and ergonomic in feel, this knife is designed to prevent hand fatigue through prolonged peeling work.
The knife is asymmetrically ground, exhibiting a flat grind on the left hand side of the blade and a convex grind on the right. This blade and edge grind will make for an exceptionally sharp edge that will guide true and release rinds, skin or other peeled matter prodigiously.
Blade length: 70mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.8mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
