Suitable for any use, it is the most widely used kitchen knife. Highly versatile, this gem can be used for various tasks, from chopping to slicing, up to cut into cubes any kind of food. One of the main features of a chef’s knife is its wide and sharp blade. However, this model differs from European-style ones by its V-style, typical of the Japanese tradition. A unique process which can only be carried out manually and requires special skills. The end result is excellent, as the back of the object is not weighed down, as is the case for European blades.

TOTIKO JAPAN KNIVES. A series of Japanese knives combining exceptional sharpening, easy maintenance and practicality. Their highly ergonomic Western-style handles, suitable for any type of cut, match perfectly with Japanese-style blades. Our chef’s knives are manufactured with care using high-quality material. A manufacturing process which takes more than 60 days to be carried out. The German-steel core is rich in carbon, and has an enhanced crystal structure which is obtained thanks to a precise cryogenic tempering process with liquid nitrogen. This increases strength, flexibility and hardness, giving a sharpness which can be compared to the one of a particularly elastic scalpel. The blade is resistant, with a long-lasting sharp blade.
