When you use a Tojiro knife, you’re holding in your hand the product of more than one thousand years of evolution and quality craftsmanship.
Tojiro, from Japan, can trace their heritage all the way back to the days of the Samurai – the ancient caste of warriors charged with protecting the most valued members of Japanese society. These fearsome fighters required equally fearsome weapons. Japan’s finest swordsmiths were charged with the task of bringing to life the most legendary weapon ever created – the samurai sword.
And even samurai swords had a sheathe to rest inside at the end of the day...so where to put your Tojiro knives? The kitchen drawers simply aren't safe enough – you wouldn't put your sword in a cardboard box, would you?
If knife blocks aren't your thing, then perhaps you would prefer a Magnetic Knife Stand from Tojiro? Such stands are popular in Japanese restaurants for quick access to knifes, which stick to the magnetic body of the Stand rather than slide in to individual slots. And when you're in a rush in the kitchen, you probably don't want to be poking around with an awkward knife block.
Like many things of Japanese design heritage, Tojiro's Magnetic Knife Stand is sleek and simple, able to fit in to just about any kitchen without sticking out like a sore thumb among the decor. Carefully weighted, the Magnetic Knife Stand won't fall when you're removing knives, and features a shiny lightning bolt-like embellishment down its centre.
Able to hold up to eight knives, the Tojiro Magnetic Knife Stand is the sort of kitchen utensil that will really make you feel like a master Itamae
(that's the Japanese word for a true chef).
Magnetic Knife Stand features:
- An easy-to-clean body that holds knives using only magnetic force.
- Body is also weighted so that it won't fall when knives are removed.
- Holds up to eight knives with a maximum length of 27cm.
- Felt pads on the base of the stand to keep it from damaging furniture.
- Hand wash if required.
Dimensions: 29 x 15cm.
