Konosuke is one of the most exciting Japanese knife companies to watch out for their appetite to do things differently from the norm. The company is well regarded for its incredible attention to detail and performance when it comes to its products. If you are a lover of beautifully-made functional tools that have a unique design philosophy, join the fandom (and the waitlist..).
We at Tosho are extremely proud to be their partners, and look forward to the next shipment!
The Sanjo line features an amazingly thin edge (super high-performance) that makes you feel like you are using a laser in the kitchen. Though with great power comes great responsibility; the Sanjo line is not for a user without the gentle technique that the thin edge demands (otherwise it can micro-chip easily). We say 'this knife requires utmost respect and care so it can perform the way it was meant to' to flabbergasted customers testing this knife at the shop. If you are ready to commit to the highest level of cutting performance, the Sanjo line from Konosuke is the one for you.
Nakiri is a versatile blade that excels in processing large amounts of vegetables and the rectangular shape is also very useful to pick up all the chopped bits!
