TOJIRO Japan produced their first knife in 1955, a stainless steel paring knife. The knife was not an immediate success as it was not considered sharp enough. Although stainless steel was the popular choice for knives at the time carbon steel was considered to have a higher potential for sharpeness and edge retention. With this in mind TOJIRO began production of a carbon steel version of their paring knife along with a range of other shapes and sizes.
Today, TOJIRO is considered an innovator in the kitchen knife industry and working under the motto “More than just sharpness” the firm aims to deliver not only sharpness, but a feeling of oneness with the user through ergonomic design. Tojiro produce kitchen knives for professional and home use and are considered some of the best knives in the world.
