Collection: Tojiro Zen

Zen (禅)—an ancient school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing insight into the nature of the mind and the world through selflessness and meditation.

Tojiro Zen blades are forged in the centuries-old san mai ("three-layer") style, combining the strength and edge retention of a hardened VG10 cobalt-alloy core steel with the protection and flexibility of a corrosion-resistant 13 chrome stainless jacket. The razor-sharp blade is hafted to a handle of fire-blackened chestnut wood to create an elegantly simple, supremely functional knife.
