Japanese kitchen knives, divided by specialization.
The short gyuto F-693 looks like a Santoku knife, but a bit longer.
The blade, sharp as a razor blade, is prone to rusting and requires careful attention.
You can ignore the appearance of stains, but you can not allow rusting cutting edge.
Other quality abrasives can be used, including diamond stones, but this should be done carefully and with understanding.
The blade are symmetric, of 3-ayered layered high carbon Shirogami steel, with quenching up to 60 HRC Rockwell and a soft steel lining with black finish.
Tojiro products are manufactured in Japan at the Fuji Cutlery Co. factory in Tsubame, Niigata Prefecture.
This is an enterprise that created and owns brand rights.
The culture of production and sophisticated technology, put the company's products at an unattainable level, in terms of price and quality.
Handle size is medium, conical, with a slight bulge on the right side.
The handle material, is natural magnolia wood, without impregnation, with a bolster made of durable food-grade plastic.
The tree is not impregnated, and in order to extend the service life, it is reasonable to independently impregnate the handle with linseed oil until it completely dries and polymerizes.
It should be noted that knives with a handle made of wood, despite the high-quality processing, are not designed for washing in dishwashers and sterilization, which is sometimes a necessity for cafes and restaurants.
Following these simple recommendations, the owner will enjoy a Japanese knives set for many years, because a high-quality knife is capable of working for decades.
We offer the same complete service for successive maintenance & re-sharpening.
