The Tojiro moto is “Ichigo Ichie”, meaning once in a lifetime. Tojiro manufacturers knives whilst thinking always about the user. Tojiro believes that the use of the knife should enrich the user’s life each time that gives the feeling of a once in a lifetime use.

The history of Tojiro started after WW2 when it released an all stainless steel fruit knife in 1955. At that time, stainless steel knives performed poorly compared to their carbon steel counterparts. Tojiro began making carbon steel knives, continuously improving on the production. Tojiro believe that a knife is more than about the cutting edge, their corporate message is, “more than just sharpness.”

Tojiro produce knives that not only have exceptional sharpness but that also feel comfortable in your hands.

Tradition and innovation are part of the Tojiro manufacturing process. Tojiro always prefers to use clad steel, steel that is forged in the same way as the traditional Japanese Katana sword. The area that the factory in located in, Tsubame, in Niigata prefecture has always been at the fo

refront of Japanese steel making and so Tojiro have always had good access to the best metal suppliers.

Tojiro merges Japanese tradition with modern technology, pressing out sheets of clad steel by stamping machine. Although these machines have allowed the knife making process to become more efficient, Tojiro still relies on the skill and instinct of its master craftsmen. Tojiro values the skills of every single one of it team. Every master craftsman must be satisfied with every product. Tojiro products are held in the highest regards not just in Japan but all over the world.
