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. 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.
