The Fujiwara FKM Gyuto measures in at with an impressive 270mm blade length. You really do need a larger kitchen or a chopping board with some serious real-estate to get the most out of this cutting machine.
But if you have that space in your home or commercial kitchen then this is a mighty tool indeed. The 270mm gyuto is great when you have large jobs like cutting several bunches of celery or a whole bag of carrots at once. They are a great prep workhorse and preferred size by many professional cooks.
With a fairly generous blade height of 55mm these knives are perfect for those with larger hand or seekers of increased finger to board clearance.
This is a wonderful transition knife for chefs used to the heavier and bulkier western chef knives. It is way more responsive and nimble and is far less fatiguing to use. Its relatively thin grind enhances the cutting abilities and thus the effort required to get through that pile of veggies!
The tough and care free stainless steel blade is high in Vanadium and Molybdenum and makes daily maintenance a breeze. The black Pakka wood handle is also easy on the eye and hand. It gives the knife a very neutral balance point just around the ferrule.
This knife is easy to use. Easy on the pocket. And very easy to recommend.

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.
