Chef Knife

multi-purpose knife designed to perform well at a number of tasks as opposed to specialising in any one purpose. Used for mincingslicing meat, chopping vegetables and disjointing large cuts. A must-have in any kitchen.

Santoku Knife

The name Santoku is translated to ‘three virtues’ symbolises the characteristics of this knife – chopping, dicing, and mincing. A great all-purpose knife.

Compared to the Chef knife they are typically smaller, thinner and lighter, may be more comfortable for people with smaller hands and allows you to chop food with ease.

    DP3 Series

    Entry-level DP3 knives feature a high carbon cobalt alloy core cutting-edge sandwiched between two layers of 13-chrome stainless steel.

    Handles are made of extremely durable ECO wood (resin-impregnated woods) and have forged bolsters.

    The DP3 series offers very affordable entry into high-quality Japanese cutting power.

    Care Instructions:

    • Do not wash in the dishwasher, as this may cause corrosion of the blades
    • To clean, run under hot water with a small amount of detergent and dry thoroughly
    • Store in a dry, moisture-free place to avoid rusting or discolouration
    • If the knives are not used for an extended period of time, wrap them in a dry cloth or newspaper and store them in a dry place; the hygroscopic paper will keep the blades dry and the oil from the printing ink prevent corrosion
    • Select the correct knife for the task to ensure you will get the best cutting results and you are also easy on the blades
    • To keep the handles on your Tojiro knives in pristine condition, we recommend using camellia oil. It is also good protection for the blade but must be removed from the blade before cooking. Do not use wax, use at your own risk.

    Knife Sharpening

    Tojiro whetstones and accessories have been developed to cater for the needs of enthusiastic cooks to professional chefs and are available in a wide range of abrasive grades:

    • Coarse (#220-#400) for repairing chips and reshaping the blade
    • Medium (#800-#1000) for regular edge maintenance
    • Fine (#3000-#8000) for polishing and hardening to a razor finish

    Double Edge Whetstone Sharpening

    To maintain a keen edge on your Tojiro knives, we highly recommend periodic honing with a whetstone.

    Our most popular whetstone is Tojiro’s #1000/#3000 combination stone, but you may wish to start with a coarser grit for dull or damaged knives and fine-tune your edge using a high gritstone.

    Tojiro recommends sharpening using the “70/30” rule - spend 70% of your time honing the primary cutting side of your knife, and 30% on the reverse side removing burrs.

    If you’re right-handed, the primary cutting side is the right side of the knife when held in a natural cutting position; if you’re left-handed, it’s the left side of the knife.

      They come in a decorative box

      This is really a great knife set, I love them and you will too. First they come in a decorative box with cut outs to hold them and the box has a \closure, so you always have a place to keep them. Secondly they are so sharp that you can cut anything with ease even just very small slices like fruit and the such.

      Thanks for the feedback Lee. To keep the blade of the knives sharp and lasting a very long time it is best to sharpen your knives every once in a while. We recently added a range of Tojiro whetstones to our store if you are in need of one. Don't hesitate to contact us if you ever have any questions or need help choosing one.
