Product detail

Shippu in Japanese means a stormy wind. And that's exactly how some of the most beautiful knives ever arrived in the Nippon Knives portfolio. As soon as they jumped out of their exclusive packaging, they immediately took a place of honor in our showroom. The slogan that accompanies these knives: "Blades like lightning cross the dark sky" is not by no means just a metaphor. However, judge for yourself.

Blade core made of VG 10 with a hardness of 61 HRC, cladding of folded hard and softer steels on the sides. The result is a beautiful 63-layer damask pattern /petty and paring knife 37 layers/. That would be enough for someone, but definitely not for Shippu!

The final layer is a special oxide paint used in healthcare. It gives the blades a mystical smoky expression. The icing on the cake are golden kanji applications. It is probably useless to recall that Tojiro used his DP method (decarbonization prevention) in the production of these blades. The resin ferrule is a partition between the blade and the chestnut handle in the classic "D" shape. The wood has a fire finish, not only to perfectly harmonize with the smoky appearance of the blade, but to make it more water resistant. Transparent matt lacquer ensures color stability of the material. Despite its 63 layers, the knives are surprisingly light, just like the wind.

Who is looking for the purest aesthetic concentrate combined with the ultimate material is in the right place.

About producer


We have been watching the Tojiro brand for several years. We focused our attention not only on the kitchen knives themselves, but also on the history and background of the company, the scope of its assortment and the ability to repeatedly achieve the highest quality standards. Finally, after getting to know each other for a long time, we had the honor of representing the Tojiro brand in Slovakia.

There are several areas in Japan famous for the concentration of exceptional blacksmiths and grinders. Cities like Seki, Sakai, Takefu, Tsubame-Sanjo need no introduction to lovers of noble knives. And it is in the Tsubame-Sanjo area in Niigata Prefecture that Tojiro is based.

Tojiro is known above all for its strict adherence to proven techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation since the Edo period. It was the duty of every wealthy feudal lord to spend a certain amount of time in the capital city of Edo. It was a sign of respect for the ruling shogun. The feudal lords brought the best quality products from their regions to the shogun. Therefore, each of them employed the best craftsmen on their estate. Blacksmiths were of course no exception. Today, the shogun for a Japanese manufacturer is its customer. This explains the enormous care for quality that producers devote to their products.

Since the mere observance of tradition is not enough in today's competitive environment, Tojiro introduces new advanced procedures and technologies into its production. It is enough to mention the DP method, in which the manufacturer can prevent unwanted decarbonization at higher temperatures. The result is very hard and durable blades DP series kitchen knives. It may be safe to say that Tojiro represents a clear symbiosis of tradition and revolutionary techniques.

Nippon Knives has selected for you the most interesting from the Tojiro production program, not only in terms of quality but also in terms of price. The ratio of price to performance is a very strong point of the Tojiro company. See for yourself and enter the catalog of our products.
