Tojiro have been doing positive activities under a slogan “World-wide exchanges and inheritance of food and cooking culture”.

They found that there are no knives specialized for services in the world through the activities and saw service persons are taking pains. That is why they developed first service knives in the world in corporation with Toshikazu Fukuoka, a chief service instructor of FFCC (French Food Culture Center), prize winners and Association des Maitres de Service. “Tojiro-Pro Service en Salle” series are recognized as Association des Maitres de Service‘s recommended knives.

No Compromise with the Sharpness
Supporting an accurate and quick cutting is one of most important points in a service field. In a developing process, they never compromise with the sharpness at all, neither because “Tojiro” have been particular about the sharpness as many people know. Because the special edging is done by full-time workmen one by one carefully, the knife moves to the direction where a service person intend to.
Beautiful Knife is Necessary for Restaurant Services
In developing this series, I had three points in my mind, which are comfortable grip, easy control and beauty. I offered detailed requirements on handle, bolster and blade.
They must be very difficult or I even thought it might be impossible, however, they are all realized exactly I imagined. I was so surprised at Fujitora’s very high skills and the quality of design.
I am also very proud of them. Usually I am demonstrating in front of students as an instructor.
I am so happy to have opportunities to tell and show them how good these knives are. I expect that not only service person but everyone who is engaged in cooking use “Tojiro” and entertained their customers with wonderful presentation.
