    New Line of Tojiro. Forte.

    Very western line of Tojiro's. I think they were just release?

    Using its Molybdenum Vandium steel (same steel as ITK Bread Knife)

    Not sure if I'm a fan of the new stuff. Handles kinda remind me of shun KO handles

    what do you guys think?

    some pics to be seen here:

    Seriously. Like a strange fusion of Tojiro, Forschner Fibrox, and Wusthof Ikon.

    The average user won't know. They'll hook up with Macy's or another big chain and will probably sell a million of them!
