Masamotoís VG series is made from Hyper Molybdenum Vanadium steel a stainless alloy with great strength and fine structure. The knife was rated #1 Hybrid Chefís Knife by Cookís Illustrated Magazine in a survey of top brands. These knives have excellent edge retention and combine the sharpness of carbon steel with superior corrosion resistance. The comfortable Duracon resin handles are anti-bacterial and easy to the touch. They endow these knives with a light and balanced feel. The 210mm Gyuto is a perfect size chef knife for all uses and spaces. Not too big, not too small. The blade comes sharpened to fine edge which is biassed 70/30. The blade height is generous for a 210mm knife which gives that extra bit of finger clearance without the penalty of too much bulk. We really like the grinds on the blades of Masamoto knives which contribute to their exceptional precision and speed. This is one of the most popular sized Gyutos made by one of the most popular Japanese knife makers worldwide.

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.
