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.
Blade length: 212mm
Overall length: 340mm
Spine thickness at heel: 1.9mm
Height at Heel: 43.7mm
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.
