We got a great deal on these Goko Hammered damascus gyutos. When Goko went to grind the blades they put some horizontal scratches on them which actually look just fine but they are considered seconds and so they offered them to us at a fantastic price! Only 99.95! These knives would easily sell for double that under normal condition. The blades are made from top quality 19C27 stainless steel with HRC of 60. The D shaped handle is made of chestnut with resin ferrule for easy care. Quantities are limited. While supplies last.
Bought on the $99 sale. Blade did have some scratches but no big deal. I did have to sharpen but is is now a really nice blade. I was not expecting it to be special but it handles real well! Bought to finish my Asian knives guest can touch collection and it fits the bill very well!

This knife is/was IMO a "best buy" at CKTG by a large margin.Even with the manufacturing "flaws" it is a visually appealing knife that works very well.

This goko 240 mm is amazing.The blade was scary sharp out of the box and the horizontal marks you described are actually very interesting. All in all amazing knife and service as usual.

looks good. O.O.T.B. blunt as anything . takes a great edge after sharpening stones. (had to use 1000 diamond,2000 shapton,4000 Belgian blue stone,6000 Belgian Coticule and then Chromium oxide on jeans) . for the price i would buy again.

A real looker,light weight and sharp out of the box.
An all around killer knife. At this price point its hard to beat. I also happen to think it looks better with the scratches. Just has more character.
