Few knives combine premier cutlery steels and experienced traditional blacksmithing at extraordinarily accessible prices the way this Tanaka Kurouchi 210mm gyuto does. The core steel in this gyuto is Aogami #2 hardened to 62-63 HRC. Aogami #2 is a high quality carbon steel offering an outstanding combination of keen edge taking and durable edge holding. The Aogami #2 core is wrapped in a soft carbon steel cladding making the knife fully reactive. While patina is normal during use, care should be taken to keep these knives clean and dry between uses to prevent the formation of rust. The knife wears an attractive kurouchi finish which will inhibit oxidation. The d-shaped handle is a utilitarian design made with ho wood and a black plastic ferrule. Since these are handmade knives, they may vary dimensionally.
Blade Length: 212mm
Total Length: 349mm
Spine Thickness at Base: 2.45mm
Blade Height: 49.15mm
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.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
