This is the coupling that sets many professional and home chefs on to the Japanese knife road—comprised of a 3.5” paring knife and the ever popular 8” chef.
We really like these knives and believe they make a great introduction to the Japanese knife genre especially for those used to the more conventional weight and feel of Western type knives. The paring knife is probably the most popular small knife in the CKTG store, while the 8” chef is a beautifully made general tool perfect for most kitchen cutting jobs.
Shun Classic knives are constructed using VG-10 stainless steel with a multi layer Damascus style outer cladding. Easy to maintain and sharpen, these knives hold a good edge especially compared to their Western counterparts. The black pakka wood handles with stainless steel end caps add a real touch of class to these beautiful blades. Fit and finish is among the best in the industry.
This set represents a great value and wonderful place to start your journey into the world of Japanese knives.
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 it’s 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. It’s 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.
