Itís hard to write about Konosuke knives without entering into the world of hyperbole! Many of our CTKG customers revere and collect the many different examples of their wares. They are written about and discussed on our forum more than any other single manufacturer. Some of their signature blades sell out within a few minutes of being offered on line. Such is the mystique and desirability of these superbly made knives.
The white #2 line is a new addition to the Konosuke catalog. Resembling the ubiquitous HD2 line, these knives are made from Shirogami #2 carbon steel. Like the HD2 they are also mono steel constructions made by the same blacksmith, so it should be no surprise that they are very similar in proportions and dimension. Like the HD2, they are a true laser in performance, too.
Much is said about Konosuke fit and finish and it is very evident with this knife. The look is classical, understated, almost clinical. The choil area and spine are rounded and polished to perfection. The handle is made from ho wood and is octactagonal in shape. The ferrule is made of buffalo horn. We sometimes get blond ones so if you're interested write us a note in the comments box and if we have on we'll send it. Donít wait for the corresponding demand - and sold out sticker!

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.
