These top of the range Tojiro Knives are fully handmade from forging right through to sharpening helping to preserve traditional Japanese knife manufacturing methods. Each knife is therefore unique. Typical of the Fujitora factory, each blade is made with 63 layers of Damascus steel wrapped around a VG-10 core. The knives are finished off with a Micarta Handle with brass plating. The knives are razor sharp and due to the difficulty in manufacturing and producing these knives we only carry a very small range. Purchasing a knife like this, is like purchasing a work of art though. We are not sure whether to use these or keep them in a glass cabinet!
