This is the big brother of the Misono Swedish Gyuto family. A big knife for big jobs in big kitchens. It is a favorite among pro chefs for itís strength, durability, long lasting edge and excellent performance.
Misonoís line of Swedish steel knives may be high value items but they give nothing away in terms of fit and finish or quality of materials. The blade is fashioned with a mono steel construction. The High Carbon alloy is among the finest structured steels available. It has the ability to take a screaming sharp edge, an edge that will hold up to the longest day in the kitchen. The full metal bolster and moisture proof handle add to the professional feel of this workhorse.
It is a well balanced knife with the mid point falling at the bolster. Like the other knives in the Swedish Steel line, it has a hardness of 60 HRC and comes with an asymmetrical 70/30 bevel. It is relatively thin at 2mm with a gentle distal taper just behind the tip. The profile is fairly flat along the belly to the 2/3 point.
To top all this off, Masimoto engrave the blade with a stunning dragon design. Beauty and the beast!
Blade Length: 270mm
Blade Thickness: 2mm
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.
