Tojiro Flash Boning Knife 15cm
The new Tojiro Flash range of Japanese kitchen knives makes centuries of Samurai sword making tradition and expertise accessible to everyone. After testing under laboratory conditions, Tojiro Flash has been found to be one of the sharpest kitchen knife ranges on the market.
The specialist manufacturing techniques were developed for the feared Samurai warrior caste, which needed a weapon that would be reliably sharp, strong and sufficiently durable to defend them against repeated danger. Samurai warriors often gave names to their swords and considered them to be the ‘soul’ of their warriorship, so style and character are also key design features.
The name ‘Flash; relates to the flash of inspiration that sparked their creation. Tojiro Flash knives combine ancient history with modern technology to create a truly remarkable culinary tool. Up to 63 layers of special ‘Damascus’ steel is folded and hammered together to create the extremely sharp and hard, yet flexible blades required by professional chefs.
At the end of the day, the blade is the business end of the knife. Heston loves these knives because of their unparalleled sharpness. This is achieved by using a thin layer of VG-10 steel which is extremely hard and layering between 63 layers of flexible and strong damascus steel.The core steel has a rockwell rating of 62 which gives the knive an edge retention superior to every other blade on the market.
The unique design of the graduated bolster sacrifices nothing in terms of comfort and balance but allows for easy re-sharpening all the way up to the heel of the blade. The end result is a totally smooth comfortable and well balanced feel.
The Micarta handle is inlayed with stainless steel for a stunning appearance. Micarta is a revolutionary new handle material that is made from linen and synthetic resin compounded by expreme amounts of pressure and heat creating a wool-like grain and feel and the absolute ultimate in durability.
