We are happy to announce a new limited edition line of knives from one of our most popular brands, Konosuke. This knife has been made in a very short run of which we managed to purchase 100 blades. These will not be made again.

The TB is a san-mai construction of Blue #2 steel with a soft stainless jigane. The inner core (hagane) is hardened to about 62-63 HRC. The grind and profile are very well executed and the stainless cladding is treated to a laid-back satin brushed finish. All around it is a really nice traditional look, befitting the Konosuke name.

The overall blade length is slightly shorter than the advertised 210mm, running about 200mm with a height at the heel of 48mm. This is a really compact and well-proportioned blade which would find favor in many home kitchens or pro set ups requiring a more petite utensil. The stainless cladding will reduce maintenance chores, but not entirely eliminate them. Just make sure to keep the blade clean and dry after use.

We have procured all the blades without handles and will be offering them with our semi-custom boots. The one illustrated features a maple handle with a nicely contrasting rosewood ferrule.

We think these knives will move out quite quickly, especially at the price. So avoid disappointment and get your order in for this very unusual and limited edition Konosuke gyuto.

    Knife came in three days. Perfectly made blade with distal taper and convex ground edge. Nice patina on the edge but quite rust resistant, a surprise. Very sharp out of the box and a beautiful custom handle. Holds an edge very well in my busy home kitchen. Saya was a perfect fit. Worth the price and more. If you like a rustic look, this isn't the knife for you. Perfect fit and finish. Lies resplendent on my cutting board. Get one!

    I ordered this knife from CKTG a few days ago and it arrived sensibly packed and intact in two days. Konesuke have a reputation for good fit and finish and the blade was perfect: conveying, geometry, distal taper and finish. The Bensbites handle is a cabinet maker's masterpiece with three magnificent hardwoods and perfect fit and finish. The saya is fine--a Konesuke product. I may finish it because the handle leaves it in the dust. Blade is a razor, beautifully balanced, needing only a peek of patina on the blue steel to complete the effect. Get one if you can.
