Falling in the middle of the Takeda classic line of Gyotos, this 240mm knife occupies the sweet spot for many professional and serious amateur chefs.
Takeda make their gyotos slightly wider than others of itís type. As such this blade is a perfect tool for those looking for a bit more finger clearance between handle and board.
Itís difficult not to gush about this knife maker and his iconic blades. Shosui Takeda has earned his enviable reputation through years of hard work and study. The net result being a comprehensive line of traditional Japanese knives that are as beautiful to look at as they are rewarding to work with. His forging and hardening methods have taken Aogami Super Steel to a level matched by few others. His eye for geometry and grind are likewise sometimes equaled but rarely bettered.
This is one heck of a gyuto! Light and thin. Hard and fast. A knife not to be toyed with. A knife that would and should occupy pride of place in anyoneís roll or block searching for a super sharp, durable and finely crafted kitchen implement.
** If you are buying a saya: The specifications of Takeda knives can vary so we prefer to fit the saya to the knife at the time you purchase the knife. We may need to make the saya to fit the knife. This will delay shipping 7-10 days. We will contact you if this is necessary.
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.
