Bocho Tadafusa “Japanese style”
The word Bocho means Japanese style. From the traditional Japanese range of hand forged blue carbon steel knives by Tadafusa. Carbon steel holds a keen edge and these knives are exceptionally sharp. The handles are crafted from burnt chestnut wood and plastic ferrules. This wood is moisture resistant and also resistant to bacteria.
These knives are created by ‘sandwiching’ layers of steel. The inside layer of Aogami (or Blue Paper Steel) allows honing to a super sharp edge. Sandwiching the Aogami between two harder layers of special composite steel enhances durability. The carbon steel exterior blade has been left with a rustic or nashiji (pear skin) finish. The undulating surface reduces suction, allowing food to fall freely from the blade and reducing resistance.
