Santoku Knife 18cm Flash Tojiro

Santoku Knife 18cm Flash Tojiro

Includes FREE Club Chef Knife Guard with purchase!

When you use a Tojiro knife, you’re holding in your hand the product of more than one thousand years of evolution and quality craftsmanship.

Tojiro, from Japan, can trace their heritage all the way back to the days of the Samurai – the ancient caste of warriors charged with protecting the most valued members of Japanese society. These fearsome fighters required equally fearsome weapons. Japan’s finest swordsmiths were charged with the task of bringing to life the most legendary weapon ever created – the samurai sword.

These days, every Tojiro knife is designed with a nod to the same time-honoured techniques developed by Japan’s ancient craftsmen…though naturally, Tojiro have added a few of their own technological flourishes here and there. The result? Blades that are the perfect blend of technology and tradition.

Tojiro’s Flash knives are something truly special. Each blade is crafted from many, many layers of stainless steel, resulting in the beautiful rippled pattern you’ll notice on every Tojiro Flash knife. Flash knives are designed for hardness and strength, and yet every blade retains flexibility. And then, there are Flash’s comfortable handles, crafted from durable micarta – a blend of multiple layers of resin and linen, with a matte stainless steel inlay.

Just like a Samurai sword, a Tojiro knife will lend an air of distinction to the chef who wields it. If you value craftsmanship, history and tradition, choose Tojiro knives.

Flash Santoku Knife features:
Made in Japan.
Blade made from sixty-three layers of stainless steel, for the perfect blend of hardness, strength, sharpness and flexibility.
Handles crafted from micarta – a unique, durable blend of resin and linen – with a matte stainless steel inlay.
Hand wash recommended.

Shun Bread Knife 22.5cm

Includes FREE Club Chef Knife Guard with purchase!

YOUR BREAD DESERVES THIS KNIFE

After a chef’s knife and a paring knife, some cooks say that the knife they most can’t live without is their bread knife. It’s a crime to ruin a fresh loaf of bread by smashing it beneath the blade of a dull knife. The wide, “low frequency” serrations on the Shun Classic Bread Knife are not only razor-sharp, but they do a much better job slicing any type of bread than a straight-edged knife. The undulating serrations provide the power you need to gently saw through a crusty loaf without tearing the tender interior. And it works equally well on very soft breads and even pastries. Whether your bread is delicately tender or wonderfully crusty, just gently saw back and forth to cut off the perfect slice of bread with nary an unsightly rip or tear.

The Shun Classic Bread Knife is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND IN THE KITCHEN

If there is one knife that you simply can’t be without, it’s this one. The Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is an all-purpose blade ideal for a wide variety of cutting tasks. The eight-inch length is perfect for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. The wide blade keeps knuckles off the cutting board and is extra handy when transferring cut food from board to pan. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince. Shun Classic's thinner blades makes it lighter and less tiring to use than comparable European-style Chef's knives.

THE SHUN CLASSIC CHEF'S KNIFE—WITH HOLLOW-GROUNDS

If you have only one kitchen knife, the Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife is the one to have. This one is extra-special because of the hollow-ground indentations on the side of the blade. They create small air pockets that reduce friction when cutting, making it easier to glide through the cut. If you’ve had problems with sticking, try a hollow-ground blade. Otherwise, use the Shun Classic 8-inch Chef's Knife as you would any other chef’s knife—for slicing, dicing, and chopping small to medium-sized fruits, vegetables, and other foods. With its curved belly, the Chef's knife can be gently "rocked" through fresh herbs or spices to produce a very fine mince.

Shun Santoku Scalloped Knife 16.5cm

Includes FREE Club Chef Knife Guard with purchase!

ADD THIS AWARD-WINNING KNIFE TO YOUR KITCHEN

A santoku is a Japanese all-purpose kitchen knife. Like a chef’s knife, the santoku is used for just about every cutting job in the kitchen. The name means “three virtues.” Depending on who you ask, the name refers either to the three types of foods it works well with—vegetables, poultry, and fish—or for the three types of cuts at which it excels—slicing, dicing, and chopping. Hollow-ground indentations on the blade help reduce friction so the blade glides through the food more easily. When we first introduced the Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku to the market, it was named “Kitchen Knife of the Year” by Blade magazine. The Shun Classic Hollow-Ground Santoku is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery.

The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony PakkaWood® handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's VG10 steel, known for its incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.
