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 170mm Santoku is a great hybrid knife. A cross between a chef knife and a vegetable cleaver, it is very versatile. These knives are known for their superior performance for the price.
Blade length: 170mm
Overall length: 300mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.8mm
Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.
Wow this knife is amazing. Scary sharp. My SO is scared to use it. Will definitely buy from again.

Awesome knife at a great price! The blade is 9/10ths as good as much higher priced knives,but the fit and finish do reflect its lower price. Much better than a Henckels,for the same price. Quick shipping as well.

Great knife! The gf bought me this knife to congratulate me on getting a new job. sharp as heck OTB,easy to re-sharpen,great feel in the hand. There is no better knife for the price. That’s why this is my second knife from the DP line.

This knife is amazing for the money. I’m in love with Japanese knives now. I like my Tojiros much better than my previous set of -double the price- (Zwilling) Henckels. Highly recommended for the price range in Japanese Knives.
I have been in love with Tojiro knives for over 5 years,when you could only find them direct from Japan (though they were about 40% cheaper then!). This santoku is perhaps the best bang-for-buck knife out there,and I’d recommend it to just about anyone. Chefknivestogo delivered it quickly and in perfect shape,and I’ve been impressed with their customer service and love the video reviews!

Bought this as a gift for my son’s mother-in-law (Marija),who admired her daughter’s Masamoto santoku,gifted by me a few years ago. The Tojiro was decent sharp out of the box,but I tuned it up to 8K with Shapton stone on Edge Pro,plus leather strop. Will report back when my good friend and great cook Marija tells me how the Tojiro performs.
