Out of stock. This knife is a custom sized gyuto made exclusively for CKTG. The knife is extra tall and made with HD steel. The knife has a rosewood octagonal handle with ebony ferrule. Here are the specs:
As always,incredibly fast shipping. The box housing the knife is certainly the nicest of any I’ve previously purchased; this continues to the cardboard sheath for the knife. The fit and finish on the knife is astonishing. Absolutely perfect sharpening job (sharpest OOTB edge I’ve ever experienced),rounding of the spine was subtle,and the handle looked almost like it wasn’t made of wood (in a good way). The height and profile of the blade are perfect for me,and the edge retention is superb.
I was very surprised at how light-weight it is; even with the taller/thicker blade,it still performs like a laser.
This is the perfect knife for me,hands down.
This knife is amazing. I researched various brands and styles for a long time to make sure I made the right choice,and after using it for about a month - in a restaurant setting - I believe I did. I donít think I would recommend it as an everyday,home-kitchen knife (although it is gorgeous and so easy to use with the edge sharpness and retention),simply because of the size,but in a restaurant - definitely! I enjoy the XL because of the height...seems more proportional. So,highly recommended. This is a fabulous knife!
