The Santoku knife 16.5 cm Tojiro Black Zen is a hybrid style of knife combining some characteristics of a gyuto and a nakiri.
Excellent at vegetable work, santokus are also a multi-purpose blade that many chefs use in the place of a gyuto.
Indeed, this pattern is accessible and easy to use for the vast majority of daily cutting requirements.
The Tojiro Black Zen collection radiates the Japanese tradition of knife-making.
The stylish, darkened robe coated blade of the knives is comprised of three layers.
The central layer of the blade is made of VG-10 steel, an extremely hard core alloy with the addition of cobalt, hardened to a hardness of 60+/-1 HRC Rockwell, developed by Takefu industries.
The core is clad with a softer, corrosion-resistant 13-chrome steel.
The Zen series consists of traditional Japanese shaped knives. The relatively large traditional D-handle on these knives is made from light-weight chestnut wood with a black PC resin ferrule.
Because they are also protected with transparent varnish, they show high resistance to moisture and discoloration.
The handle is shaped in the traditional Japanese D-shape. Basically this means it is suited for right-handed use, but the asymmetry does not bother for left-handed users.
