To many professional chefs, carbon knives are the only way to go. For these knife purists, Togiharu Virgin Steel Knives are made with the same level of carbon steel as a Japanese yanagi. The Togiharu carbon line is crafted out of junkou steel (virgin carbon) with a bacteria resistant polyacetal resin handle. The purity of the junkou carbon steel makes the blade harder, which allows it to hold a sharper edge for a longer period of time. Professionals agree that carbon knives can teach cooks how to be organized and care for their tools.
Steel Type: Carbon (Moisture and acidity will cause discoloration or rust)
