Tojiro Shirogami ITK Kiritsuke 240mm F-689
Kiritsukes are a status symbol in Japan. Tojiro takes pride in Japanese skills for cutleries. The enthusiasm for pursuing sharpness created “Tamahagane” that is extremely pure iron no one had never seen. The “Tamahagane” is highly valued as “Yasuki-Hagane” that is very good for knive-making in the present days and it also has very important role to support Japanese knife culture. Tojiro employed “Shirogami” that is taken as synonymous with the “Yasuki-Hagane” and put soft iron on it and forged. This series can offer you high quality and reasonable price as well.
Special Swordsmith, Tojiro calles them “Tosho”, who are allowed to make Japanese sword by government can only make Japanese sword. Also they are under many restrictions on the materials, processing and so on to protect traditional Japanese way. That is why it is said that “Japanese knives are the best ones that everyone can have, which also have the best keenness”. “Tojiro” also has been transmitting the tradition and trying to develop a fusion of the tradition and modern technology on Japanese-style knives. Tojiiro has studied the best temperature for hardening, the edge angle, etc. for Shirogami steel. Tojiro can highly recommend this series with firm confidence.
