The Tojiro Oboro series of knives are great blades and are what I would call a big bang for the buck. This collection perfectly fulfils the need of most home cooks, without too many bells and whistles. Beautiful, understated design, scalpel-sharp and easy to sharpen, these knives are stainless, rugged and easy to maintain. Many cooking students and people in the know are grabbing these knives as a great introduction to Japanese knives.
VG-10 is steel designed to make knives; it brings sharpness, toughness and stain resistance together in the best combination possible. The result is a mind-blowingly sharp edge that stays sharp a crazy long time. Compared to other stainless steel, it is a dream to sharpen. You’ll never see your food discolour or have to pick up a rusty knife.
These knives are finished with a modern hybrid-style Micarta handle. Micarta is made from layers of linen that are injected with resin and pressed under extreme pressure. The result is an ultra-durable, waterproof, beautifully modern handle.
