Features of the Tawa series
The name Tawa comes from the Japanese Kanji '' ta '' (many) and '' wa '' (Japanese). It stands for the various Japanese knife traditions and skills, which have been collected all over Japan and poured into our own Tawa series. A completely handmade knife, made in Seki City and finished in Osaka.
The matte finish is refined and the layered construction of the blade is clearly visable. The heel is rounded and polished, this will ensure a good grip while cutting.
Elwin de Veld about his Rooij knives
A Rangelrooij knife has to have it's own identity. Now in 2019, I am a knife sharpener for 25 years, I have sharpened many knives. I think as a knife sharpener, I have held many models and brands in my hands. A knife from Rangelrooij has to have it's own identity. Now, speaking in 2019, day in day out knives went through my hands, probably I have seen a big part of all chef knives. No, a ROOIJ knife is not a new invention of a knife, it's a process of experience, listening to the end user and negotiate with the knife maker. Our highly skilled knifemakers in Japan are doing an awesome job. We are so proud at this collaboration. All our knowledge, experience and passion come together in our ROOIJ knives. Arigato gozaimasu.
