We have a soft spot for the sword shape of a kiritsuke. There is something about it that screams sharp, purposeful and traditional, and this is quite simply one of the best Kiritsukes on the CKTG site.
The Keijiro Doi White Steel Kiritsuke measures 240mm on the blade. It is of fairly average thickness but of way above average build and finish. The lovely kasumi upper edge is embellished with some fine looking engraved kanji characters. Of course this is a traditional one sided bevel so it for righties only. Also this is a carbon steel blade, so it requires the care and attention to drying and maintenance that these blades demand. It will patina over time, but this will just add to the wonderful personality of the knife.
Keijiro Doi is a master blacksmith from the city of Sakai who makes traditional Japanese knives by hand forging. We are proud to offer these excellent quality knives by the 80 year old master. He forges his knives in a small blacksmith shop and distributes them to several companies in Sakai. We buy his knives through Sakai Takayuki, one of the finest knife companies in Sakai City.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
