For Left-Handed Customer

  • This Western-style knife can be changed to left-handed by Korin's resident knife master.

  • The fee for this conversion is $25.00 and has been automatically added to the cost of your purchase.

The Togiharu Inox is one of the most popular lines in the Togiharu brand and features the widest variety of styles. The lightweight thin profile and keen edge glides through food without drag or resistance. This line is easy to sharpen, making it possible to acquire a sharp edge quickly in a busy kitchen. The highest level of knife crafting skill is employed to make these blades from a blend of high-grade chromium and molybdenum that allows the blade to hold an edge longer than the Togiharu EA line.

The santoku, meaning "three virtues", is an all-purpose knife that takes its name from its ability to easily handle meat, fish and vegetables. The high profile of the blade makes the santoku well-suited for smaller kitchen spaces and keeps the knuckles well above the cutting board.

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.
