The Tojiro Japanese Stainless Steel Kiritsuke Knife - 160 mm is one sweet-looking and performing knife, especially given its really low price. Tojiro makes a huge number of different knives that span the gamut of steels, shapes, and price points. This bunka is from their DP series of stainless steel knives made with the ubiquitous steel, VG-10. The alloy is treated to achieve an incredible balance of sharpness, retention, durability, and refinement. The core is then clad with softer stainless steel to improve the integrity of the blade and ease of sharpening.

The Tojiro DP Kiritsuke (it's actually more common to call these knives bunkas in Japan) boasts a super-fine tip that provides excellent performance. It is not as tall as many bunkas and has a bit of a belly to the edge. This allows for some rocking techniques to be employed along with the usual chop and push cuts normally associated with a bunka. *Our sayas DO NOT fit this knife.

The DP series comes with a very nice black micarta handle that exhibits a wonderful fit and finish that will hold up even after many years of hard use. A stainless steel tang and rivets add to the knife’s strength and aesthetic appeal, which is further enhanced by the addition of some nice etched kanji.

For the price, there are very few other knives that can compete in overall quality of construction and performance. Truly an excellent value is provided with these blades.

    Nice knife for a good price! Very sharp out of the box & edge retention for few weeks at home use has been good.

    This knife is great all around. It's aesthetically pleasing and it feels great. Sharpened up to hair popping sharp in maybe 10 minutes. I gifted it to a close friend who had not a single nice knife. She absolutely LOVES it! She tells me about every time she uses it. I have the DP petty that I use for mainly potatoes and it's great. Love this company and I'm enjoying building quite a decent little collection. Definitely worth the low price! ;-)
