The Minamoto Nashiji gyuto is a smallish knife for a gyuto. The blade length comes in at about 203 mm. As such it is adept at multi tasking in most kitchen scenarios.
This blade is constructed from Aogami blue #2 steel with a stainless cladding. The handsome san mai laminated blade construction is used to add corrosion resistance while maintaining strength and durability. A stunning hammered and etched nashiji finish applied above the shinogi adds a real touch of class to this fine implement. The exposed blue #2 carbon core will develop a patina which enhances the beauty of this knife while adding a degree of rust resistance.
The blade has a symmetrical primary grind which transitions into a secondary bevel or cutting edge, which is ground 70/30. But fear not, this is a knife good for both right and left handers. It cuts with a clean and precise action suitable to both rockers and push/pullers alike.
This is a very well made and great looking gyuto which at its $125 price represents one of the best deals on the CKTG 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 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.
