Konosuke Sakai is a knife company based in Sakai City, Japan, home of many of the top Japanese knife manufacturers. They began operating in 1932 and have since built a reputation as makers of some of the finest blades available.
The HD2 line of cutlery is a perfect example of the skill and finesse that is put into each of their products. Constructed from a proprietary semi-stainless steel, these exceptional knives provide protection from rusting normally encountered with High carbon steels.
The steel is heat treated to an HRC of 61, which allows for an ease of sharpening and superior edge retention. This 120mm Petty is excellent for meat trimming or can be used as a larger paring knife. Super light and sharp right out of the box. It comes with a nicely finished Ho wood handle with a Water Buffalo Horn ferrule. A great entry into the world of HD steel.
Blade length: 111mm
Total length: 246mm
Spine thickness at base: 1.7mm
Blade height: 23.8mm
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.
