Don't forget these...
We know you probably come to our website to explore brands you've heard about elsewhere that are well established like Takeda, Nakagawa, TF and so forth. Well... it's time we build a reputation for ourselves by offering our own brand of knives, Tokushu brand, made by Tadafusa.
Shirogami (white) steel is one of the sharpest and purest carbon steels you can own, in a Japanese kitchen knife. Which is why we are using white #2 steel for the core of this Tokushu line, giving you an incredibly high performance knife, with a little less reactivity than white #1 and minimal impact on sharpness. To pair this beauty up, we have a kurouchi finish to protect the blade above the shinogi. All our Tokushu line knives, have our very own kanji stamped into the blade. So start filling your knife block with these well priced knives and spread the word, Tokushu sells its own knives too!
A nakiri will quickly become your go to vegetable prep knife. The flat surface along the length of the cutting edge means you can say goodbye to accordion cuts. At 170mm, it is marginally longer than most you will find at 165mm. Perhaps not a difference you will notice on the cutting board, but a good excuse to buy a knife in a length you don't have right?
- Steel White #2
- Heel height 49mm
- Spine above heel 3.75mm
