Product detail

The Tojiro brand is already among the constants on our market. It is one of the larger manufacturers with a wide range. Whether you are looking for knives with European ergonomics but exemplary Japanese cutting performance, or traditional Japanese designs, Tojiro will never disappoint you. Despite the fact that there is still a lot to choose from, the manufacturer often adds new models to its collection. We are pleased to have the honor of introducing you to the hot new Tojiro GAI.

The new GAI series consists of four carefully selected types of knives. They are exactly the ones you use most often at work or at home. The length of the blades is rather among the more nimble ones, or you can call them more clever. You have at your disposal a universal preparation knife Petty, a vegetable master Nakiri, a Japanese chef Santoku and Gyuto, which directly sticks with meat. If the manufacturer can be criticized for anything regarding the composition of the collection, perhaps it is the absence of a bread knife with a serrated blade.

Looking at the knife's appearance, you don't need to know the Japanese language to decipher its name.

Thanks to the massive and articulated handle, it will remind you of armor and that is exactly what the word GAI means. The color and rough texture of the quality Micarta evoke a reference to the armor of samurai warriors. For some, they will resemble even on the rough leather of sting-ray, which can be found on the handle of original katana type swords. Whatever the shape, the handles perfectly fulfill the main role of a firm grip without the risk of slipping. An interesting finishing touch to the "weapon look" are the hexagonal heads of the three screws.

For the blades, the manufacturer opted for a very popular Damascene composition. The hard cutting core made of VG-10 cobalt steel is lined on each side with 18 layers of softer and harder steel. This type of layering is called kasumi. The result is a 37-layer damascene blade, which is not only beautiful, but also strong. Of course, Tojiro cannot miss a laser print in kanji characters as well as the name and country of origin in Latin. The blade is symmetrical, Hamaguri type. This means that there is minimal friction when cutting, which not only makes your work easier, but actually invites you to do it. The knives are packed in very tasteful and even decent cardboard boxes, which clearly meet the requirements for gift packaging.

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.
