Tojiro Narihira is the ultimate budget-friendly Japanese knife, perfect for your first apartment with roommates or folks living on a tight budget who still want to enjoy cooking. The Molybdenum Vanadium steel is stainless, affordable, and far more durable than most other Japanese knives. There's no fancy blacksmithing or laminated steel here, just quality materials at a super-affordable price!
Tojiro is a knife-making giant in Japan. While they have a small factory that produces incredible hand-forged knives, their true specialty is factory-made knives. In Japan, “factory-made” isn’t what most people think. While the blades are rolled and stamped, much of the work is done by hand including grinding and finishing steps. Tojiro primarily works with VG-10, a stainless steel loved for its ease of sharpening and easy maintenance, but they also use VS2, SK85 and others.
