The name is translated as “three virtues” or “uses”. It is not clear whether it refers to the kind of food – fish, meat, vegetables – or to the types of cut it is intended for – mince, slice, cut into pieces. Or, again, it may refer to the fact that it encompasses all the functions of the three traditional knives, i.e. deba, usuba and yanagiba. Sharpened on both sides, its shape is inspired by Western-style knives. Light and manageable, Leggero e maneggevole, it has had great success in kitchens all over the world.

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, following a semi-artisanal process using high-quality material. A manufacturing process which takes more than 60 days to be carried out. Polishing is completely handmade, revealing a magnificent damascus texture. The VG-10 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. Each one of our knives has handmade finishes carried out in 3 phases using Honbazuke method.
