4 people found this review helpfulI bought this for my friend who was impressed by the cutting demonstration of the 210mm version. I own a 240mm Moritaka Gyuto which is the best Japanese knife I ever owned, but Tojiro DPs perform almost as well. I don't think the alloy core of the Tojiro DPs get as sharp and durable as the AS core of the Moritakas, but for something that's almost half the price, the Tojiro DPs deliver the best bang for the buck.
Out of the box, the edge is decently sharp with just a little bit of hesitation in the paper-slice test. But a little bit of work on the stones will get the edges hair-splitting sharp. Compared to Blue Steel blades, Tojiro DPs are noticeably heavier, which may be good or bad depending on preference. The Eco-wood handle is comfortable and the general F&F is excellent. Finally, the stain-resistant steel keeps the blade looking like new.
