Made in the storied cutlery making city of Sanjo by the renowned blacksmith Hinoura, this 180mm funayuki is a characterful, masterfully crafted, and versatile option for any knife enthusiastís collection. Mr Hinouraís Tamashii line is kurouchi finished with stainless steel cladding over a reactive carbon core. As the core steel is reactive, care should be taken to keep the knife clean and dry between uses. The core steel is Shirogami #2, a highly regarded cutlery steel capable of taking extraordinarily keen edges. The blade is extremely thin making it adept at delicate and precise tasks. The octagonal handle is made of yew with a buffalo horn ferrule. Both the blade and handle are made with a high level of fit and finish. Like any handmade item some variation in dimensions will occur between knives.
Blade Length: 171mm
Height at Heel: 38.2mm
Thickness at spine/heel: 3mm
Handle: Yew Octagonal
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.
