Tojiro Chef Knife 180mm – Senkou series


This is the shortest of the Tojiro Chef knives that we stock and has a very nimble feel to it. Its a combination of great materials including VG10 steel for the core and durable Micarta for the handle. The blade edge has a great profile and is razor sharp straight out of the box.

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.
