RYUTOKU knives are manufactured by Fuji Cutlery Co., Ltd. The sister company of Tojiro applies advanced construction techniques and modern materials, combined with high-quality Japanese quality control to produce great knives suitable for chefs, home cooks, and professionals at a great price.
While Tojiro knives are professional grade, Ryutoku knives are meant for home use. Meaning, you are not going to be using them for hours and hours every day.
This is a santoku knife, the Japanese version of the chef’s knife. The shape of the blade of the santoku is, unlike a chef’s knife, practically the same alongside the entire length of the blade and only has a slight curve a couple of centimeters from the tip towards the spine. In addition, the Santoku is lighter and shorter than its European brother which makes the Santoku very popular.
