Hitohira Imojiya MZ VG-1 Safety Santoku 135mm Pakka Handle
Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients ever happier.
For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. Often, we are not at liberty to publicly disclose these makers' actual names. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits.
The Imojiya MZ line is a very affordable line that has released a knife with a rounded tip and rounded heel as to avoid any poking accidents. The blade is still very sharp and requires the respect, care, and maintenance that an ordinary Japanese all purpose chef’s knife requires. It’s a great knife for chefs ages 10 to 110. It’s a great knife for almost all prep work in the kitchen and doesn’t take up too much space.
