What's included

Santoku Knife (17cm)

Japanese santoku for the majority of food prep.

Santoku Knife (17cm)

This double-sided santoku is thinner and more flexible than more traditional forged blades, with a smaller, straighter blade than a classic chef’s knife, which makes it easier to lift off the chopping board for more agiler cutting. It can be used for a wide variety of kitchen prep, be it meat, fish or vegetables.

Product Details

Since 1953, Tojiro has produced high-quality cutlery in Tsubame-sanjo, a craft centre in Japan specialising in metallurgy. They were one of the first Japanese companies to prove stainless steel knives could be just as effective as carbon steel for culinary use, and their passion for melding traditional Japanese techniques with modern industrial technology has won them multiple international design awards. The Tojiro Classic range features stamped blades with a core of hard VG10 steel (58±1 on the Rockwell Scale), clad with softer stainless steel. These double-sided blades are thinner and more flexible than more traditional forged blades. The riveted Western-style handles, made from ultra-durable resin composite, are ergonomic for a comfortable grip. The knives' full-tang construction enhances blade-to-handle balance and sturdiness. They are built to withstand many years of regular use in home and restaurant kitchens. The Tojiro Classic 5-Piece Knife Set includes a 17cm santoku knife, a 21.5cm bread knife, a 21cm carving knife, a 15cm utility knife, a 9cm paring knife, and a magnetic oak knife block from Zassenhaus.

As with all Japanese knives, they must be used with care – make sure to avoid tough impact with bones and frozen food. For more on Japanese knife care, read our guide here.

About The Brand


Established in 1953, Tojiro pioneered the use of stainless steel culinary knives in Japan (which were considered sub-par to carbon steel at the time). In addition to sharpness, their designs incorporate comfort and durability – the result of the way they have combined ancient Japanese metalworking traditions with modern machinery.
