We really like 240mm gyutos and our sales of this style of knife in this size lay testament to the fact that our customers do too.

CKTG is the only place where you can purchase these high value, high performance Kohetsu knives. Featuring a very well executed and thin grind, these AS blades are hardened to a Rockwell of 64. The stainless cladding reinforces the core steel and adds a protective layer to the carbon steel. The exposed edge will develop a patina after a while which will add further protection to the blade. The blade has a thinner than average grind and 50/50 symmetrical edge.

The Kohetsu AS brand is a great introduction to Japanese carbon steel. It is relatively easy to keep sharp with minimal reactivity. We make these knives with the straightforward aim of providing great performance at an attractive and affordable price. Other gyutos with these specifications and quality can cost as much as twice this price.

    The AS steel holds an edge very well. The blade on my knife was set into the handle slightly crooked and the cladding scratches very easily.

    I've bought this knife as a gift to myself for my birthday, and I can say that I'm really impressed!The F&F of the knife is very good, everything is well rounded and the patina that will form makes the knife still more beautiful! The OOTB sharp wasn't actually great, but not a big deal, because the knife is very easy to sharpen (I'm still a noob) and the edge retention is out of this world. I recomend it to everyone that wants a really good wa-gyuto, but don't have the budget to buy more traditional knifes( By the way, something better that this will cost at least 130 more dollars).

    Thank you Mark for the help and to make this knife possible!

    It's a great knife. The reason why I give 3 stars is because I got mine crooked, the blade is not exactly in the center of the handle, I just realized this after I use it.

    This is a very good knife for the money. It is certainly not a cheap knife.

    The out of the box edge is very good. The handle is well done.

    Anybody considering an 8 inch chefs knife should consider this one because it's light weight and length is not exactly bulky.

    I don't feel like this knife is much larger than my 8 inch Shun classic.

    It will be very difficult to find a stainless clad knife made of this type of steel for under 200$.

    It can be overwhelming looking at taking the plunge into quality Japanese knifes.

    At it's price point I do not feel like I bought an entry level product.

    If you have skepticism about house branded products from Mr. Richmond, this would be a great ice breaker.

    Thanks to Mr Richmond for making this knife possible.
    A big thanks to Mrs Richmond for shipping fast.

    II do feel like I got a high end knife at a competitive price point.

    Once again I certainly do not feel like I bought an entry level product.

    Been flying through prep with this knife all week. Its the perfect size at 240mm,and handles like a much smaller knife.

    Really enjoying this new knife. It is quite sharp and glides almost effortlessly through all the veg I could find in the kitchen. The only problem I have now is to figure out what I am going to do with everything I have already chopped up.
