Bigger is better? Well, it depends on many factors, including workspace size, job requirements, and user preference. If you find that these criteria are best met by a larger knife then the the Kaneshige stainless wa gyuto 270mm could be the blade for you.
For all of its larger dimensions, the Kaneshige 270mm gyuto is quite a nimble and responsive instrument. It has a fairly thin 50/50 grind and a slim spine. The blade is a light middleweight which is perfectly matched to the slender octagonal Ho wood handle. This combination results in a balance point which is just forward of the pinch grip place. The almost constant spine thickness gives the knife a stiff and responsive feel. Some beautifully hand chiseled kanji script, applied by master engraver Mr. Kawamura, adds an air of luxury to this modestly priced knife.
Kaneshige constructs this knife from a mono steel molybdenum vanadium stainless alloy, offering superior stain resistance and edge retention. The steel is hardened to about 59 HRC.
If you are looking for a well constructed and finished chef style knife at a very reasonable price, the Kaneshige stainless wa gyuto 270mm should most definitely be on your shopping list.

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.
