Have you ever wondered what makes a Japanese knife so unique? Let us use the Tojiro Zen Santoku Knife to answer that question for you. Beautiful look, authentic design, robust blade, and an extraordinary cutting performance. With a knife like this, cutting food becomes a pleasure, because you can perform precise and smooth cuts without making any major effort. And yes, that is why Japanese knives are so unique.

Now let's have a deeper look into this santoku knife, because this specific knife is indeed special among all the types of Japanese knives. A santoku knife is the equivalent of a chef knife. Sure, they do not look the same, but they are both the most versatile and polyvalent of all kitchen knives. They can be used for cutting all types of food, but when it comes to vegetables, the santoku knife is actually a better option.

With a length of 16.5 centimeters, the blade of this knife is an authentic masterpiece. It is made of VG10 steel, which is one of the strongest types of steel used in kitchen knives. Moreover, tha blade has great endurance thanks to its high level of hardness (61 HRC) which is a common characteristic in most Japanese kitchen knives. To sharpen such rigid blade, we recommend you use whetstones with fine grains above 1000 grit.

Just when you thought that this knife couldn't be any better, we recall you that we still need to talk about its handle. It is made of white oak wood, which adds a touch of warmth and beauty to your kitchen utensils, and it is connected to the blade through a black bolster that is made of polypropylene. Finally, its traditional Japanese design enables you to have a comfortable and stable grip that allows you to have full control of all your cuts.

This santoku knife was made by Tojiro, which is a Japanese brand with great reputation in the industry of cutlery. Founded in 1955, Tojiro is known for always manufacturing Japanese knives of outstanding quality and remarkable designs. Nowadays, Tojiro knives are used not in only the Oriental market but also in Western markets such as the European and the American one.

To be more specific, this knife belongs to the Zen series, which is one of Tojiro's most popular line of kitchen knives. The Zen knife range is ideal for cooks that love using knives that combine great performance and quality with extraordinary beauty. The excellent cutting performance of Tojiro Zen knives makes them tools of extraordinary quality that anyone would love to have in the kitchen. 

Do not settle with just one, so go ahead and take a look at all the other Tojiro Zen knives available on our website and equip your kitchen with Japanese cutlery of truly high quality !
