Takeo Murata is well known for his ability to combine keen sharpness, a balanced feel and the simple beauty of steel into his hand forged knives. We are fortunate to be able to offer these blades to you at a considerable discount as our way of introducing you to this craftsmanís wares.
The gyuto in 210 mm size is one of the most popular knives in any Japanese knife quiver. And this handsomely finished blade would make a statement in any kitchen. The lovely Kurouchi finish aids in the maintenance of the knife while adding a rustic beauty. But be prepared to keep it dry between uses as this is a high carbon steel prone to rusting if left wet.
The use of Aogami Blue #1 steel results in a blade that is easy to sharpen and keep a screaming sharp edge on. Rockwell Hardness is rated at 61-63. The Western style handle is made from black pakka wood and is mated to a welded bolster.
Blade Length: 210 mm
Thickness at Heel: 2.5 mm
Blade Height: 45.5
Steel: Aogami #1 (Blue #1)
Handle: Pakka wood
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.
