For decades, Tojiro knives have served as a gateway into the world of high end Japanese cutlery for professional and home cooks alike. In the DP series, Tojiroís excellent treatment of VG-10 core steel provides for extreme keenness without sacrificing edge integrity or retention. The core steel is laminated with softer stainless steel which enhances the ease at which the knife can be sharpened and provides an element of support and ductility to the harder core. These qualities, in concert with nice convex grinds which aid in food separation and a high level of fit and finish, make the Tojiro DP series regarded as one of the best values available in the knife world today.
This gyuto, in 210mm format is a heavier middleweight knife by Japanese standards though substantially lighter than many Western equivalents. The edge profile performs well through most cutting styles including rocking, push and pull cutting and slicing. Being a touch longer than 210, this knife will be a wonderful transition for those used to working with 8-9 inch Western Chefís knives and will be capable of handling all but the very largest ingredients.

    Now that I have a few weeks of using this knife I have to say it is a great starter knife. It's my first chef knife and it chops onions, carrots and other veggies beautiful. It's a true pleasure to use. It's also not heavy so less hand fatigue. I recommend for a starter knife.

    I've purchased a few of these knives Now for professional chefs in my area. They absolutely love them. They have a great out of the box edge, they are easy to sharpen and hold their edge too. The price is fantastic. Can't get over how much I enjoy these knives,they are comfortable, very nicely made and also come in a pretty nifty box. I will definitely be ordering more in the future. As always, the service is top notch.

    My first serious knife and still a favorite. This is a great all-around knife - not too heavy, given the western handle, well-balanced, and fairly nimble in the hand. This is still a go-to knife for me when I'm very busy and don't feel like worrying over my more expensive carbon knife.

    I sharpen knives a lot and I have an obsession with sharpening which has led to a burning desire to have a good knife. I decided upon the Tojiro DP after discussing the product with Mark. I have never ordered a knife online so I was a bit apprehensive.
    I have seen many very sharp knives, I'm familiar with a nice edge so I expected to have to sharpen the knife when I got it. I was completely blown away by the edge as I received it. It is absolutely terrific, the knife looks great as well, the box it came in is even top notch. After having the opportunity to use the knife I'm extremely pleased and I've already ordered more as gifts. The price is right, it will be easy to sharpen and as always, when dealing with Mark and Sue I got Executive Service, I'm a happy man.

    Best starter knife! This knife just makes life easier at work and at home!
    I work in a high volume production kitchen and had always dreaded having to cut chicken with our stock knives. I had been wanting a good knife for home use anyway and my Exec Chef told me only Japanese and I am glad he did! With a little research I feel I got the best bang for the buck! I use this at work and at home on my third week and darn that blade is still sharp....Oh yeah cutting chicken at work is kind of fun now I can cut it thinner, faster and the cuts are so much cleaner...OOPS forgot to mention the knife is so light (yet balanced) I feel a lot less fatigued!
    My Exec Chef is so impressed with it he says he will probably buy one and he owns knives costing 4 or 5 times more than this!

    After 25 yrs of mostly contented professional, demanding use of heavy German steel, this tojiro is a minor revelation. Prep is faster, easier and looks and eats better than i've experienced. I don't worry my knife will lose its edge before i'm done with a task. I don't see buying another western knife

    I'm not sure if this is the norm, but my Tojiro was a bit dull - to the point where it squishes tomatoes. Some sharpening has helped. Other than the edge, I am happy, especially with the fast shipping and great packing.

    Hello,
    I received my Tojiro DP 210mm gyuto today. I cut up some onions and potatoes with it. The knife worked flawlessly. The blade went thru the onions and potatoes like they were not there.

    For the price this knife is a great deal, period....

    Thanks Mark for your comments on this knife...

    I own a knife sharpening business so I see and handle LOTS of knives. Of course, I USE them as well. The value of the Tojiro DP's just cannot be beat. These are light, sharp, beautiful knives at a price that makes them affordable for anyone who is serious about cooking. I expect that in years to come, this three-ply design will be a standard in kitchens around the world. The VG-10 steel center ply with a Rockwell hardness of 60 ensures that they will stay very sharp for a long, long time. Although a number of Japanese mfrs produce this style of knives, the Tojiro DP line is the value leader.

I ordered it on monday, it was in the netherlands on friday. To bad stupid netherlands customs took 4 days to process it and they charged me 25 bucks import costs. But with the shipping and Import costs still a great buy and a fair price :) to bad i don't live in the usa, i would have gone s/chopping crazy!

    Impressively sharp, right out of the box. Still getting used to it. Not as much rocker from the tip to the heel, as with my german knife. Sort of a long flat section from the heel to middle of the knife (or it's just a much more gradual curve), so it's almost like a nakiri combined with a chef's knife in some ways. If you tend to point with your index finger on top of the blade, rather then pinch, the square edges on top of the blade are still sharp enough to cause discomfort, but not actually cut you. I have a tendency to hold the knife further down on the handle, so I have to consciously choke up on my grip so I'm putting more downward force with my palm, rather than with my fingers pinching the blade, or else the top of the blade tends to rub my index finger raw. Looking forward to getting more of the Tojiro knives.

    A good knife. Sharp out of the box, very good fit and finish. It can take on an even better sharper edge and retain it.

    Given its high performance and reasonable price (cheaper than most Henckels and Wusthof), this knife is a bargain and is a standard.

Together we went through 50 lb. onions, 15 lbs. lemons, 5 lbs jalepenos, and still sharp enough to glide through 25 lbs of tomatoes without honing. Great knife so far. Fit and finish are great. Sharp out of the box. Very fast shipping from Chefs knives to-go. We will be buying more.

    This is my all purpose knife. I used the full length of the blade, so it isn't too short for me. There were 2 burrs on the choil(one in front of the bolster, ouch!), but they were removed easily. The downsides are minor, sharpish angles on the handle end, soft(easily scratched) steel cladding, and a big ugly logo on the left side. Everything else leaves little to be desired. Holds a great edge that's durable, lightweight, well balanced, and stainless throughout. I abuse this thing and it is good to me in return. Fantastic value.

    After doing much research, I decided to make this my first Japanese knife purchase. I couldn't be happier. The blade was sharper out of the box than any of my Wusthof knives have been even after professional sharpening. No fit and finish issues whatsoever, just a well made knife at a FANTASTIC price. I would've paid at least 150% of the price for this great knife.

    This is knife is just unbelievable. I have not used many other knives other than Chicago cutlery, which plains sucks imo. All that I can say is that this knife lives up to its reputation, plus there's a reason that this knife finished second only to the Misono ux 10 - it's that good. I am planning on purchasing the accompanying pairing knife to go with this, as well a sharping stone and a magnetic block to store it in. Definitely a big bang for the buck here!

    This is the perfect knife for anybody looking to get into Japanese knives, or just looking for a step up from his or her everyday chef's knife.

    The fit and finish on this knife is good, and the sharpness is excellent. The knife sharpens fairly easily too!

    Highly highly recommended.
