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 santoku
in 170mm 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.
