When processing vegetables, the quality of the edge a knife can take is paramount to high performance. This Teruyasu Fujiwara Nashiji 165mm nakiri is lauded for the extraordinarily acute bevel geometries it can take and its ability to hold the most refined of edges. The fantastic edge taking properties are attributed to the use of the premier cutlery steel Shirogami #1 in the core and the core steelís incredible heat treatment. Fujiwara hardens the core of these knives to an astounding 64-65 HRC, well above the hardness of most knives using similar steels. The reactive core steel is wrapped in a low maintenance stainless steel cladding. The finish is an attractive, rustic pear skinned finish. The octagonal handle is well made using ho wood and a buffalo horn ferrule. These knives are pieces of functional art hand crafted by the Fujiwara family. As each knife is unique, dimensions may vary from those posted.

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.
