About the Knife
The Tojiro Tojiro Sha Ra Ku Mono Chefs Knife expresses Japanese traditional beauty combined with modern feeling.
Designed by Komin Yamada (designer of the original Global knife) and used by famed chef Heston Blumenthal, the Sha Ra Ku Mono offers superior cutting performance and durability which is both hygenic and food safe. The sleek one piece design is made of molybdenum vanadium steel, usually used for scalpels for its corrosion resistance, with an elegant and angular design finished off with hand-painted squares to identify the series.
The sleek modern look has been acknowledged by the Museum Of Modern Art in NYC which displays one of the first sets manufactured.
The blade is the business end of the knife. Heston loves these knives because of their unparalleled sharpness. This is achieved by using a thin layer of super hard vanadium / molybdenum steel which is extremely hard. The new Tojiro Sha Ra Ku Mono knives are built tough for heavy duty use day in and day out whether in a professional kitchen or in your home.
The unique design of the graduated bolster sacrifices nothing in terms of comfort and balance but allows for easy re-sharpening all the way up to the heel of the blade. The end result is a totally smooth comfortable and well balanced feel.
The beauty of the Sha Ra Ku Mono handle is in its simplicity. Elegant smooth flowing lines are comfortable to hold and easy to clean and keep sanitary. The square motif in the middle provides grip and is reminscent of the art and design of classical Japanese sword makers.
