The long, elegant lines of yanagibas are not merely aesthetically pleasing—they allow complete slices to be performed in a single fluid motion. This 210mm yanagiba offers exquisite craftsmanship and high end performance in a convenient package. The knife features a Ginsan steel hagane hardened to 61-62 HRC and a stainless steel jigane for ease of maintenance. Ginsan steel is well regarded for its excellent edge taking. The d-shaped ho wood handle with black buffalo horn ferrule is well made and cleanly installed. As these are traditional designs they are single bevel knives and are only appropriate for right-handed use. Single bevel knives require a different sharpening procedure than Western styled double bevel knives. These knives are hand crafted by third generation blacksmith Takeshi Saji, a master blacksmith with over a half century of experience. As each knife is unique, users should expect them to vary dimensionally one from another.

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.
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!
Top quality service. None better.
