I’ve OFTEN heard this line of knives described as “the gateway” to Japanese steel. If had known about Tojiro knives when I started cooking, I definitely would have scooped a few of these knives up for my kit. Tojiro DP steel is hard enough to hold a very sharp edge, yet durable enough to with-stand serious workloads. They are perfect for all cooks! Tojiro knife factory is located in Niigata City, a city famous for being a trading hub, and the most populated city in the prefecture.
The DP line is very diverse, with something for every job on the cutting board. This makes them a wicked choice for wannabe chefs, culinary students, and professional’s alike.The core of the knife is composed of high-tech VG-10 steel. VG-10 is a common steel used to forge knives in Japan. It has high praise from the big wigs in steel production, and is reputed for being and extraordinary performer.
The entire line of Tojiro DP knives is fixed with a western style “Eco-wood” handle. This type of handle is made from recycled wood and is pressed with resin, making these knives easy on the environment and tough as nails. These knives have won multiple awards for their practice design, and functionality.
