This Is the Cheapest Japanese Chef’s Knife You Should Buy

Tojiro’s affordable, well-designed gyutou is your gateway into having way too many Japanese chef’s knives.

Chandler Bondurant

Thin bevels, a straight vertical hilt and impressive sharpness make Tojiro’s DP Series Gyutou the ideal entry-level Japanese chef’s knife. It’s made with hardwearing, wear-resistant VG10 knife steel and it sports a more western ergonomic-focused handle. Today, it’s on sale — shoppers can save a modest $10 on the 8.2-inch Tojiro DP Gyutou. Don’t forget to sharpen it.
