Hitohira Togashi Blue #1 Stainless Clad Gyuto 240mm Ebony Handle
Hitohira Togashi knives have some of the best steel treatment, aesthetics, and fit and finish from Hitohira. Kenji Togashi-san is a mastersmith who works almost exclusively with the family sharpener to create superb cutting tools that are extremely rewarding to sharpen. We recommend Togashi blades to cooks with a deep appreciation for craft and forging, with a healthy interest in hand sharpening and polishing with whetstones.
The Togashi Stainless clad Kasumi series is an impressive blade combining aesthetics, fit and finish, a durable edge, and ease of sharpening. A milky Kasumi finish complements a bright silver edge, while the choil and spine are polished to an elegant mirror finish. On the handle, a deep brown ebony contrasts a ferrule of buffalo horn.
Featuring a carbon steel edge produced from Blue #1, the Togashi Kasumi line is ideal for professional and home chefs who work in busy kitchens requiring a high capacity of cutting performance. Its exceptionally durable edge is made to handle high workloads, combined with a blade convexity offering excellent food release. If you are looking for a versatile and sturdy blade with incredible sharpness, these beautiful and high performing Togashi blades are the ones for you.
