Fuji Cutlery is the parent company who is the maker of the Tojiro lines of knives. This line called Narihira is a good quality stainless steel, mono steel constructed line made with Molybdenum Vanadium blended steel. The way they're able to make these for half the price of the DP line is the first part of the production takes place in China before they send them to the Fuji Cutlery factory in Sanjo City for all the finishing work and inspection. This is a great option for line cooks!
