Tojiro F-967: Blue Steel Yanagi-ba "Slanted Spine" 300mm

JPY25,790

Highest quality Wa-bouchou (Japanese style laminated knives) line from Tojiro.

The photo is showing a brown ox horn ferrule, but it seems this cannot be specified. As you can see the one that I received has black ox horn ferrule.

Fujitora is my most recommended semi-mass maker from Tsubame city, which is a neighboring city to Sanjyo where Shigefusa and Tsukasa are from. Their Tojiro line is one of THE BEST SELLING knives in Japan, to the point where the production speed is not catching up with the demand. Their products are very high in cost performance.

I have been requested for easier on wallet substitute to Shigefusa, Tsukasa and Heiji from younger chefs, and I have supplied Tojiro knives and have received good feedbacks, so I decided to introduce them on my cart page.

As these are pretty much readily available unlike the fully handmade knives by the above mentioned smiths, I will be able to maintain a stable supply.

Slanted spine is to match the index finger placement angle with the Yanagis. Rounded spine of Deba, means easier on your hand when, for example, splitting snapper head into two. You will occasionally have to bang the spine quite hard multiple times to split larger fish heads into two, and it re~~~~~~~~~~~ally hurts when the spine has sharp corners....

If there is any knife by Tojiro you wish to order, pls contact me thru the Contact Us page. The price is about 10% off the list price from the maker's site.

Below is the English page of Tojiro, but unfortunately, not all products are listed, so I suggest you to just wonder around the above Japanese page and figure out which buttons show what sort of product pages!
