Megumi, meaning “blessing,” is the second line of knives by Yu Kurosaki that we have introduced on our site. Kurosaki is a young blacksmith from Takefu who is producing some very high caliber kitchen knives. His work was first introduced to the Western market through Masakage where he produces one of their higher end lines in W#2 and the company’s ultra-high end line in Aogami Super. Working under his own label, he offers the Megumi line using a core of expertly treated VG-10 with stainless Damascus cladding and hammered finish. The grinds on his knives are excellent with a pronounced 50/50 convex geometry that gets very thin behind the edge.
The 210mm gyuto performs insanely well. It gets thinner at the tip than its bigger brother in 240mm, making it a tremendous performer through ingredients like onions. The great grind on the knife also allow it to plow through even the densest of produce without any wedging or sticking whatsoever. These are great stainless knives that have quickly become a popular choice on our site.
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 it’s 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. It’s 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.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
