The Tojiro Zen Japanese Chef knife also known as Gyuoto is the most commonly found knife in any kitchen. You can use it for almost anything – chopping, slicing, dicing and mincing. It can be used for slicing meat, along with vegetables and any other ingredients in your kitchen.
The handle of the Tojiro Zen Japanese Chef Knife is fire treated to increase the strength and durability of the wood. The fire treatment also gives the chestnut a rich, timeless appearance that brings beauty to any kitchen.
Tojiro Zen knives are lighter than you what you may be used to. The hand-forged high quality steel and wooden handle play a play into this design decision. A lighter blade is easier to control and provides a level of precision cutting you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
