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 $20.00 and has been automatically added to the cost of your purchase.

The Togiharu Wa-series is the newest line of Togiharu brand knives. These elegant knives feature a stain resistant 70:30 western blade on a traditional Japanese magnolia wood handle with a water buffalo horn bolster. The Togiharu Wa-series are Korin’s most affordable line of wa-style knives and are highly recommended for those who enjoy the larger traditional Japanese handles but prefer a western style blade.

The gyutou is a versatile chef's knife. It can be used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, making it suitable for preparing Western cuisine. Lightweight and thin, Japanese chef knives have a sharper blade and maintain their sharpness longer than most other chef knives.

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.
