Tojiro DP knives are one of the best buys a professional or home cook could make when beginning to explore the work of Japanese cutlery. The extreme value found in this incredibly high performing line is unparalleled. Tojiro does an exceptional job with the stainless VG-10 core steel in the DP series. The knives are capable of taking an extremely sharp, refined edge while also exhibiting very good retention and durability characteristics. The softer stainless cladding around the core steel helps make Tojiro DP knives easy to sharpen with excellent structural integrity. Handles are done in a black Stamina Wood which is constructed with the demands of a professional kitchen in mind though is also wonderful in a home environment. Fit and finish is high and blade geometry is superb. Over all these examples of performance Japanese cutlery offer one of the best bang for your buck out in the market today.

The Tojiro DP 170mm Santoku is a hybrid style of knife combining some characteristics of a gyuto and a nakiri. Excellent at vegetable work, santokus are also a multi-purpose blade that many chefís use in-lieu of a gyuto. Indeed, many home cooks find this pattern accessible and easy to use for the vast majority of daily cutting requirements.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
