A Reversal Idea, Forging Stainless Steel

Not only traditional materials such as Aogami and Shirogami steel, “Tojiro” we have been positively developing new Japanese-style knives using new material. Japanese-style knives made of stainless steel is one of them.
Stainless steel has a passivation film on its surface by adding Nickel, Molybdenum,Vanadium and so on, which makes blades have more corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance and fracture toughness. However, professional chefs who have been gotten used to using knives made of iron-based material, sometimes complain that “Sharpness is slightly different” or “Re-sharpning is hard”. That is why “Tojiro” made up our mind to adopt forging method that is the same as iron-based material to make the stainless close to Japanese traditional materials. By putting Molybdenum steel and Soft stainless together, we succeeded in getting more and more elemental density on the edge. We could realize the sharpness that is not inferior to traditional materials at all. Please experience the knife of new generation that was created by Tojiro’s enthusiasm.

Remaining Advantages of Stainless Steel

Molybdenum Vanadium Steel Blade

As you already know, iron is used for knives that are considered the sharpness is a top priority, however, it gets rust very easily. Professional chefs can take care of the knives everyday as their daily task, but it is very hard to avoid the rust even them. We really would like to reduce your worry except about cooking, which is our major concept to design this series. The blades that have more corrosion resistance reduce your time for daily care. You can use your time effectively to learn more skills or enjoy your personal time by using the saving time.
Of course there is no compromise with the sharpness even if it is stainless steel. Also because the structure is traditional Japanese style, you can replace handles, which is environment-friendly design. Please be with it for ever and ever by re-sharpen and handle-replacement.

Artistic Edging with Heart and Soul

Sticking to sharpness, the edge satisfies even professionals. We have more than 5 manufacturing process for edging on this series and are willing to spend a lot of time. Usually, durability is required for business-use, however, “Tojiro” have been pursuing the sharpness and studying edging and structure of a blade for a long time. This is one of a reason that many professionals use “Tojiro” as their favorite knife all over the world.
