The Togiharu Hollow Ground line is created out of 8A steel and a composite wood handle. The dimples on the surface of the knife function as air pockets to help prevent ingredients from sticking to the knife, making this line ideal for busy cooks. In comparison to the Togiharu Inox, this line’s blade is slightly thicker and heavier which makes it better for rougher work.

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

 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. 

For more information, please check our pages on different types of sharpening stones or sharpening tips.
