For Left-Handed Customer

  • This Western-style knife is right and left handed user friendly.

The Togiharu Cobalt line is created out of layered VG-10 damascus steel and a black composite wood handle. Cobalt’s properties strengthen and harden the blade, increasing durability and edge retention. These professional grade knives feature a gorgeous damascus design that also makes them popular as gifts. The symmetrical 50:50 double edged blade is suitable for both right and left-handed individuals.

Cobalt is a naturally occurring inclusive (inclusion: any mineral or material that is trapped inside another mineral while being formed) mineral found in various ores used in the preparation of magnetic, wear-resistant, and high strength alloys.

Cobalt's properties include increasing the strength or hardness of a steel. Knife manufacturers who are forging knives from metals such as VG-10 and Ginsan-ko have an added benefit due to the cobalt content already present in these two types of steel. The Cobalt vanishes after the tempering process. Forging a knife purely out of Cobalt is nearly impossible and would be not be cost-effective. When sharpening these types of knives, it may be more difficult to regain a proper edge, but their durability and cutting edge are razor-sharp.

The petty is a smaller chef knife that makes it a convenient size for peeling and other delicate work.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.
