About Togiharu Hammered Damascus 
The Togiharu Hammered Damascus is one of the most popular lines within the Togiharu collection. This line features a unique and beautiful `tsuchi-me' (hammered texture) on the blade and a VG-10 steel core, which makes it popular both for professionals and as gifts. Each hand finished hammered damascus blade is specially customized by Korin to fit professional needs. The symmetrical 50:50 double edged blade is suitable for both right and left-handed individuals.
About Togiharu 
Togiharu is Korin’s house brand and was created with the user in mind. The Togiharu brand was created for functionality and is Korin’s most affordable brand of knives. The brand name was derived from Grand Master sharpener Shouzou Mizuyama’s father’s sharpening store. Master Mizuyama’s father was a celebrated sharpener in his own right, having received recognition from the emperor for his traditional sharpening skills. Togiharu knives are produced by a highly respected knife maker in Japan who manufactures the top-name Japanese brands. The difference in the Togiharu lines lies in the quality control and hand-finishing aspects of production. These knives are inspected one-by-one for quality - they are not mass handled. The final edge finishing process is done by hand, ensuring unparalleled sharpness right out of the box. 
Purpose of Sujihiki
The sujihiki is a slicing knife intended for slicing boneless fish filets. It can also be used to slice boneless roasts, hams and poultry breasts. The short height of the blade creates less friction when slicing and the blade draws through fish and meat effortlessly using the entire length of the blade. The sujihiki is the Western-style equivalent the traditional yanagi knife.
