We are very pleased to be the sole US distributer of these fine knives from Kikuichi. They are made with a mono steel construction of a proprietary semi stainless steel. The alloy is is hardened to 61-62 Rockwell.
The fit and finish of these knives is of the highest order. Blade geometry is also well considered and executed. They boast a thin spine measuring just 2.3mm at the heel. There is a gentle taper along the entire blade which ends at the finely ground and nicely thinned tip. The 240mm blade edge has a conservative and easy to use profile with a nice flat area and gently curved belly. The 50/50 symmetrical grind is well executed and it is quite thin behind the edge.
The blade is coupled to a black pakka wood handle. There is a well made stainless bolster which joins the handle at the balance point. This simple yet attractive combination gives the knife a very refined look and feel. This is a very well regarded knife as witness the many enthusiastic comments posted here by our satisfied customers.
If you are looking for a hard working, svelte feeling and quietly appealing knife which can do duty in a pro or home kitchen, look no further. The Kikuichi Performance TKC Gyuto 240mm is here for your enjoyment and long lasting use.
Edge measures 240mm
Spine thickness at heel: 2.3mm.
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.
