Togiharu Virgin Carbon Steel

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.
