Masakage Koishi are handmade knives by Hiroshi Kato san. He has decades of blacksmithing experience and shows that here in these beautifully balanced blades. Because they are handmade, the dimensions of each knife can vary just a little bit. But all are made from Aogami Super Steel that has been hardened to 63:65 Rockwell, making these the longest lasting edges of any of the Masakage line.
The Honesuki (hoh-NESS-kee) is a Japanese style boning knife. Its triangular taper down to a thin, surgical tip allows the knife to gain easy entry between bone joints, or to slip effortlessly beneath unwanted skin or tendons. The otherworldly edge retention of the hardened Aogami Super Steel helps this knife stay sharp longer so that meat fabrication is a breeze.

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.
