Product detail

Shortly after its launch, the Tojiro Shippu Black Edition brand became one of the most sought-after knives in the Nippon Knives offer. These knives with their 63 resp. 37-layered damask were naturally categorized in the luxury segment. Tojiro has decided to provide its customers with a similar aesthetic and quality delicacy at a more affordable price level. This created a range of Tojiro Zen Black edition knives.

Zen is a form of Buddhism professed mainly in Japan. A typical method of Zen Buddhism is meditation towards unity with being and enlightenment. Although it may be surprising, the manufacturer did not choose the name Zen by accident. At the first glance, you will realize their closeness to nature. Warm wooden handles and mysterious smoke blades form a perfect harmony. Believers of Eastern philosophies will easily discover references to the 5 elementary elements. Just as the elements have found their place in nature, the ZEN Black Edition knives will naturally become one with your kitchen.

The ZEN Black Edition knife blade consists of three layers. The core is made of high-carbon cobalt steel VG-10 with a hardness of 61 HRC. The admixture of cobalt ensures hardness, but still important flexibility. On both sides, the core is covered with stainless steel with a chromium content of 13%. The blades are coated with oxide paint, which gives them an elegant "smoky" look and at the same time improves the already high resistance to oxidation. The same method is used to treat surgical instruments. Tojiro also used its decarbonisation prevention method in this series.

The ferrule forming the dividing line between the handle and the blade is made of resin. Very warm and pleasant to the touch handles in the shape of "D" are made of chestnut wood. They are brindled by fire and preserved with a thin layer of transparent varnish.

ZEN Black Edition knives belong among the lighter knives. The chef knife with a 21 cm long blade weighs 144 grams.

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.
