TESSHU Madam Ts Santoku 180mm Chrome Molybdenum stainless steel blade knife w/ metal bolster
TESSHU is our Japanese cooking knife brand name which is made by selected very skillful craftsmen in Japan.
The brand name, Tesshu derives from Tesshu Yamaoka who is a master swordsman, Zen master, and calligraphy master. I have nothing relationship with him, but I deeply respect him, and I use his first name for our brand name. Hopefully, we will keep track of right way like him in the future.
We will try to provide high quality selected knives with reasonable prices. I have sharpened thousands pieces of my customers knives at our store. The Madam Ts knives are very popular in Hawaii for decades, and I have sharpened hundreds of them, and they always get back very sharp edge, even though they were beat-up looking. The definition of great knife is the edge is sharp, retaining the sharp edge longer, and easy to sharpen. Those three things have contradiction, so it is hard to get three of them in one knife. Madam Ts knives have at least easy to sharpen and the edge is sharp for sure, so they get two points in three points. In the price range knives, it is hard to get two points. That is why I really like Madam Ts knives in the price range. It is fun to use the knife which is easy to sharpen, and the edge is sharp and sharpening it again.
