When it comes to cooking, one of the most important tools you can have in your kitchen is a high-quality chef’s knife. That’s why we’re excited to showcase our handmade Japanese chef’s knife from Korin, available on Blue Apron’s Market.
The Togiharu Chef’s Knife
Located in downtown Manhattan, Korin is home to the most extensive collection of Japanese chef’s knives in the world, including their own collection called Togiharu, named after the master Japanese craftsman who mentored Korin’s founder. Our culinary team worked closely with the makers of Togiharu to create this one-of-a-kind product for Blue Apron.
Skilled artisans meticulously handcraft each knife using traditional Japanese techniques that have been passed down for generations. The result is an elegant and lightweight knife designed to deliver exceptional performance for many meals to come. Whether you’re a beginner cook or an experienced chef, this all-purpose knife will become a staple in your kitchen arsenal.
Making Precise Cuts For Your Blue Apron Meal
The sharp blade makes slicing and dicing a breeze, while the ergonomic handle made from eco-friendly composite wood provides a comfortable grip. I used our all-purpose chef’s knife to cook my Blue Apron meal of the week, the Pesto Chickpea Grain Bowl. This dish incorporates a range of fresh ingredients that require precise chopping and slicing.
The skilled craftsmen hone the high-quality steel blade of the Togiharu knife to achieve a razor-sharp edge. This allows you to make precise cuts on the zucchini, grape tomatoes, and garlic, ensuring even flavor distribution. Typically, I use my serrated knife for cutting tomatoes, but the sharp edge of this knife outperformed my serrated blade.
After you have prepped your ingredients, you can begin assembling your pesto chickpea grain bowls. Layer the farro, chickpeas, marinated tomatoes, and mozzarella and finish it off with a generous dollop of pesto. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make this dish using the hand-forged Japanese chef’s knife.
Don’t take it just from me, this knife is a favorite for our customers. A Blue Apron customer since 2020 says:
“The versatility of this knife makes it a perfect staple for any kitchen. I’ve enjoyed using it so much that I bought it for every member of my family.”
A functional gift for yourself or the home chef in your life, the Togiharu chef’s knife from Korin is a cut above the rest. Buy your own on the Blue Apron Marketplace.
