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.
These days, every Tojiro knife is designed with a nod to the same time-honoured techniques developed by Japan’s ancient craftsmen...and such legendary knives need to stay honed!
Tojiro's 1000/3000 Whetstone is ideal for home chefs, and is a simple way to hone knives with minimal fuss, thanks to its combination construction of two fine gauged sides. All you need to do is submerge the Whetstone in water for three minutes, and then remove it from the water. While the Whetstone is still wet, use the desired side of the stone to sharpen your knives. The rose side of the stone features a 1000 level of grit for removing chips and reshaping edges, while the mustard side of the stone features a 3000 level of grit for edge restoration.
Simple to use, the 1000/3000 Whetstone is just the thing for your Tojiro knives.
