Combining excellent grinds, impeccably treated VG-10 core stainless steel, and a beautiful Suminagashi finish, the Tojiro Damascus line of knives offered here is a phenomenal value. It is hard to find this much performance in a kitchen knife at such a low price point and, as such, we highly recommend this line of knives for those taking their first foray into the world of high performance Japanese steel.
Tojiro’s Damascus petty in 135mm format is a wonderful hybrid knife combining the features of a usuba and small cleaver
. This knife is a vegetable cutting machine and can also be applied in most tasks that one would traditionally use a chef’s knife to accomplish. This pattern is very accessible and quite popular amongst home cooks.
