Nakiris are growing in popularity, for good reason: theyíre a perfect blade for processing vegetables efficiently and quickly.
We have built this great looking nakiri out of HAP40 semi stainless steel. This alloy is made by Hitachi and is rich in tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and cobalt. Knives made from this steel keep their sharpness 3 to 5 times longer than traditional blades. HAP40 is extremely tough, and so it is fairly resistant to chipping along the edge. But despite this hardness and edge toughness, they are quite easy to sharpen on regular waterstones.
The Kohetsu HAP40 nakiri has a fine and understated look to the blade. It is enhanced by the attractive and ergonomic Western style handle which features mahogany scales and a stainless steel bolster.
The new HAP40 line from Kohetsu is a game changer. Never before have you been able to have a blade so tough, so sharp, and so easy to maintain at such an affordable price.

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.
