Description

The Tojiro SG2 Chef's Knife is a kitchen essential, designed to peel, trim, slice, dice, chop, and mince vegetables, fish, meat and more. The Tojiro SG2 series features a full-tang, 3-layer blade constructed of very hard SG2 powdered steel core sandwiched between two layers of softer stainless steel. The Rockwell Hardness of 64 is hard enough to hold an edge, but easier to sharpen than super hard steel. The triple riveted traditional style Micarta handle with bolster contains heft and balance and the closed bolster collar allows for full and complete sharpening of the blade. The thin blades, feature a razor sharp edge that is hand-honed and sharpened by skilled craftsmen in Japan.

    Good Value SG2 Knife

    I tried another brand SG2 chef 8” knife made by Tojiro, which is not Damascus pattern, turning out pretty good. The knife is about $70-80 cheaper. I am happy buying the knife

    Very impressive

    I'm a relative novice with regard to kitchen knives but I do have some good knives (Wusthof Classic of various types). This was my first Japanese knife and fulfills all the major expectations: very sharp (read: VERY SHARP), a bit liable to stain or rust if left with water on it (I have some barely visible spots on mine).

    In some ways it is not typical Japanese high end though: the Western handle keeps the balance toward the handle, not toward the blade as with some knives with traditional Japanese handles. It is not very light.

    It is beautiful--it has understated graceful lines that I appreciate more and more. I love it.

    Perfect dream knife: ultrasharp, balanced, safe to hold.

    I collect kitchen knives of all brands, shapes, materials, edge geometries, aesthetics, handle shapes and compositions. I thought the Tojiro SG2 chef's knife was just one more knife to add to my collection, no big deal. The moment I picked up the knife and started cutting, I could not put it down; it cut everything superbly: tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushroom, carrots, lettuce, cucumber, steak, meat roast, flab fajita beef, sausage roll, squash, rehydrated dried bamboo shoot, fish, shrimp, boning. I could not believe a knife could have such superb performance. When I examined the cut surface of food under a magnifying glass, the cut surface was crisp clean without any scuffles. The blade just smoothly glide through all foods without making any sound. Tojiro SG2 chef's knife passed every test I could think of. The knife weighs 7.0 oz, balanced, safe, just right and didn't cause any hand cramping or arm fatigue after 4 hours of continuous cutting. The edge held sharp and strong after all that work, no chipping on cutting edge. The handle perfectly fits in my palm; the soft rectangular cross-section of the handle gave good downward directionality so that I did not accidentally turn the knife away from the food and cut my hand. I've cut myself many times with round-handle knives. The knife did lose the ultra-sharpness after about 4 days of regular use (~12 total hours of constant cutting). I was able to bring back the edge after a few strokes on the ceramic rod sharpener. Sharp…
