Product Description

A good Chef knife will last you a lifetime. Properly cared for you will pass your knives on to your kids. It’s an investment and as far as investments go the Tojiro Chef knife from the Senkou range is certainly a good one. In the kitchen knife industry Tojio stands for quality. Professional chefs recognize the brand as one of the best in the industry.

The Tojiro Chef Knife is forged with a VG10 core and 63 layer Damascus cladding. With a Rockwell rating of 62+ the knife’s edge is hard enough to take a very sharp edge and soft enough to be relatively easy to sharpen. The Damascus cladding is purely aesthetic, but with 63 layers it gives the knife a beautiful 3D effect that is certainly eye catching.

Each knife in the Senkou range (also known as “Flash” in some markets) has a beautiful ergonomic handle which feels great in the hand. The handle is constructed out of hygienic FDA approved Micarta and has unique exposed full tang giving the blade great balance and weight. The balance point on the Tojiro Chef knife is directly over the heel of the blade, which is perfect for pinch grip.

If you are interested in purchasing a high quality kitchen knife this is definitely a good option and the build quality on these knives is faultless. We have been using Tojiro knives for many years in our test kitchen and have always found them to be great quality.

Tojiro Japan

Another star amongst the professional community the Tojiro Senko and DP ranges have been widely praised by professional chefs at all levels including celebrity chefs like Heston Blumenthal.

The history of Tojiro knives started with a stainless steel fruit knife that was released in 1955. At that time stainless steel was not the same standard as it is today and carbon steel was considered far superior. Tojiro began to develop superior stainless steel products, partnering with steel makers to develop and improve the quality of the stainless steel. This was the beginning of a company wide philosophy that dictates that, while sharpness is certainly important, ergonomics and maintainability are also important. Tojiro knives are designed to bring joy to their users in every way.

At Modern Cooking we see the Tojiro range as a fantastic product, which is suited to home and professional use. The knives are well made and feature superior quality steels, craftsmanship and design.
