We have several very fine cutlery lines we recommend to people looking to get into Japanese knives. The FMK line from Kanefusa Fijiwara is one that ranks up with the best and receives our enthusiastic recommendations time after time.
The FKM brand may be budget in price but itís rich in features and quality. The collection features a great mono-steel construction made from a Molybdenum and Vanadium stainless steel. Corrosion and discoloration are non issues with this easy to maintain blade. It also comes with a sharp edge that is long lasting and easy to sharpen.
240 mm gyutoís are fairly large knives capable of making light work of larger products. However their relatively slim blade and nice pointed tip allow for precision cutting and prepping of even small garnishes. The edge is nicely flat to about the 2/3 point where it gently curves to the fine tip.
The blade has a thin grind which is reflected in the fairly light weight of the knife. This light weight is reinforced by the black Pakka wood handle which falls nicely to hand and gives the knife a nice balance point just forward of the bolster.
The Fujiwara FKM Stainless Gyuto 240mm represents serious bang for the buck and a perfect entry point into the world of Japanese knives.
Weight: 7.6 ounces
Blade Length: 240 mm (9.5")
Overall Length: 370 mm (14.5")
Thickness at Heel: 2.2 mm
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.
