Ittetsu Tafu

Ittetsu is the shops house brand and we've been working for a long time to find high performing, affordable knives to offer our customers. These are made for us in the Echizen region. The name Tafu translates to "tough" and they're just that! A full stainless blade, water resistance pakka wood handle/ferrule and steel tang inserts not only make this knife a tank, but also will offer a bit more weight and confidence in the hand! However, the utilization of heavier materials in the handle/tang construction allows the knife to maintain a mid weight cutting feel despite its more robust feel. 

The Knife 

The Ittetsu Tafu is a great knife for beginners to Japanese knives, or professionals that work in high output/fast paced environments. With enough meat behind the edge to resist chipping, water resistant handle, and a stainless blade these knives are there when you need them, and never something you have to worry about. 

The petty knife is great for all the little random tasks you come across in your day to day life in the kitchen. If you're a professional looking for something compact and nimble you can use on the line during service, perform various butchery tasks and small vegetable prep this is a great option. Likewise if you're a home cook these make great knives to leave out on the counter during the day to help with small breakfast and lunch tasks like cutting up fruit, maybe slicing a tomato and cutting a sandwich in half, before getting the Chef's knife out for larger dinner prep. These are great little knives that are an essential for both home cooks and professionals. 

Knife Care (Stainless Steel)

  • Although this knife is made from stainless steel we do still encourage our customers to keep their knives as dry and clean as possible.
  • NO DISHWASHER - the high heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Wash and dry by hand using regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Ensure the knife is dry before being put away for storage and ensure the edge of the knife is protected to avoid any unnecessary dulling.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
