Kikuichi TKC are very popular with knife enthusiasts and professionals. These knives are available only from CKTG in the United States. The TKC knives are made of excellent quality, semi stainless steel with great geometry and good fit and finish. Kikuichi's name as well as its distinctive chrysanthemum are stamped on the blade.
The blade is made from a proprietary semi stainless steel in a mono construction. It is hardened to 61-62 HRC. The blade height is a fairly short 43.5mm but coupled with the medium size pakka wood handle give the knife a lovely balance and nimble feel. But larger hands should possibly look elsewhere. It has a 50/50 symmetrical grind so right and left handed users are welcome!
The TKC Gyuto has a thin spine (2.2mm) which tappers to a very nicely shaped tip. The blade is also quite thin behind the edge, which comes fairly sharp out of the box. It is a very good looking knife in a pleasingly simple way, no bling here! The profile is fairly average for a gyuto with a nice sized flat spot giving way to a gentle curve to the tip. These are really well made and finished knives with a smooth touch and look. This is a great choice for all cutting styles and uses.
Here are the specifications:
Blade Length: 210mm or about 8.25 inches
Spine Thickness: 2.21mm or .087 inches
Weight: 168g or 5.9 Ounces
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.
