This Hitohira TP santoku has been sharpened just once by a Tosho staff, and has almost all of its orignal performance. The surface finish is slightly different from the brand new model.
*This blade comes with a fresh edge and a box.
TP line is perfect for any cook who is looking for a high performing blade with a long-lasting edge with minimum rust management. (actually, who wouldn't want this?) The blade is relatively thin at the edge, and it can chip if used without proper technique or understanding. Regardless, these are some of the most popular gifts as well as investments in one's tool kit at Tosho.
Santoku is an all-purpose blade that is incredibly useful for tight spaces and it is the one that most home cooks should purchase first. Even folks who use paring knives for everything can quickly get used to this blade since it brings so much utility in a compact size.
