Highly recommend

Great product, as expected. Exceptional service with fast delivery

Worth every yen

Love the 240mm Moritaka. Outstanding quality. And it makes prep work that much easier. Best part? It stays razor sharp!

Love the knife!

I’ve only used the knife a couple of times since I received it, but I have some very nice German and Swiss knives by far this is my favorite.

Great service. The Moritaka knives are superb. Even with everyday use they remain razor sharp. I'm buying more products from Tokushu Knife.

Amazing Service!

The owner did not STOP until i was satisfied. Incredibly responsive by email. Unparalleled service. Highly recommended!

Great knife

The Dao Vua sujihiki 330 mm is a piece of art. Very good knife with a beautiful double baver.

Great product - easy to use, helps keep knife sharp

I got this strop after someone gifted me a Japanese knife and I started reading up on how to keep it sharp. What I read quickly convinced me to stay away from honing rods (risk of blade damage) and move towards a strop instead. Zach Peters returned my request for information with a phone call and talked me through the strop choices available, the various abrasives and compounds I could use, and technique for effectively using the strop. I made an angle guide (approx 11 degrees) by folding a piece of paper at the corner three times (see pic). Even without adding any kind of compound, the strop helps keep the knife edge sharp. It takes very little time, I use it about once a week for touch-up, and we’ll see where it goes. Guess the next thing for me to do is try the compound on one side, keeping the other side clean for finishing. Thanks to Zach and Tokushu Knife for answering my questions and delivering product quickly. As a bonus, it all came in a fun little “Evidence” box that made me and my family laugh.

Great knife

Knife takes an edge with no time at all, I work in a Japanese restaurant and will cut for hours straight. Holds the edge very well also! Great for getting some nice steaks !

Works magic as a stand-alone strop without compound

I bought this strop to apply 6 micron Gunny Juice, but on arrival the leather looked like might work well without compound. After stropping 3-4 knives I'd say the results are almost magical. I get a clean, keen edge using just this strop.

My review

Beautiful knife. Great size great shape great craftsmanship. My go to knife in my gear bag can do almost any job needed. Holds an edge can work all day. What a workhorse!!!! 10/10. Just remember to wipe it before you walk away.

Crazy sharp out of the box

I’m happy with it as I knew what I was getting into. The blade is razor sharp out of the box, but that does come with a few draw backs. The blade is more delicate so try not to cut anything too hard like seeds or bone and it’s not the most comfortable to hold if you use a pinch grip.

Exceptional Work of Art

This knife is an item of beauty and supreme craftsmanship, something to be very proud of and happy to own.

Special edition kiritsuke

Have had this knife for a few months now. When I first got it I had some concerns but after a lot of use it has become one of my favorite knives. The blade is fairly thin with a great profile and is light and nimble. For the price point it is an excellent knife. It is a carbon steel knife so keep it clean and dry and strop it often.

Best cutting board ever

Amazing quality, beautiful texture, non slip and easy to clean surface. Would purchase again.

Takamura VG-10 Migaki Santoku 170mm

Buy me

These knives are the best bargain, and wonderful to use. I have 5 sizes.
This company is fantastic to deal with !

Beautifully sharp. A great knife if you're wanting to step up from more basic knives.

240 kiritsuke

This knife is a beast. This is a knife with some serious heft. Fairly thick at the spine with zero flex. Slightly blade heavy which makes it good for chopping large and tough veg. Decent edge out of the box, just a quick strop with green compound and good to go.

Shibata Koutetsu 195 mm

Wow, what a laser and it is now the thinnest blade I own and perhaps even the sharpest, though my three Denka series blades and my Shigefusa give it a run for its money. I would add that the Shibata is delicate and if you're not used to using super-thin blades, this may not be the best choice. With that said, if you're cutting mostly veggies and/or boneless meats, it's a wonderful choice; moreover, it's downright cheap for the sheer performance that it delivers. I'm very pleased I bought it.

Best place to buy knives!

I have bought several knives from Tony (Tokushu Knives) and will be giving him my business again! The first knife I ordered ended up getting damaged in shipping. Tony responded to my email in less than seven minutes offering a replacement and a free upgraded Wa handle for the trouble, even though he wasn't the one who damaged it. He immediately earned his place as one of the best with such amazing customer support. The replacement was easy, and I bought a second knife from him. They are insanely sharp and well built. They're also not overpriced like so many in the US. 10/10, will be purchasing many knives from Tokushu!!
