From Tsubame-Sanjo to the world
Tsubame, where TOJIRO is located, is a metal-processing industrial cluster area known as “Tsubame-Sanjo”. Since manufacture of Wakugi (Japanese nail) started in the early 1600sknives, pipes, copperware, metal-carving, cutlery and other products have been manufactured, and have increased in export.
Tojiro continues to manufacture the highest quality knives in this region where the spirit and techniques of manufacturing have been handed down since ancient times.
Also known as Shiro-ko, White paper #1, steel used for high-grade blades. This is a very pure Carbon steel alloy.
Since it does not contain alloy components, the skill of the blacksmith will be noticeable. With excellent craftsmanship, Shirogami has hardness and tenacity comparable to other steels, making it a good sharp knife. It is very reactive so wiping down and drying should be done after every use.
