In terms of performance, Tojiro DP knives punch well above their respective price points which is why they are regarded as some of the best, if not the best, value available across Western or Japanese brands. In the DP series, the makerís handling of the stainless VG-10 core is phenomenal and has extracted the best characteristics of the steel. The knife takes a highly refined, incredibly sharp edge that is exceptionally durable and easy to maintain. The core is clad in softer stainless steel which is easier to sharpen and provides structural integrity to the knife.
The Tojiro DP 240mm gyuto is a favorite amongst those transitioning from softer, heavier, Western knives into the world of fine Japanese kitchen knives. While longer than many Western chefís knives found in the home kitchen, the excellent balance and manageable weight of this gyuto allows users to experience heightened dexterity and speed while also benefiting from the additional cutting power of a longer knife. This format is a favorite amongst professional cooks and home cooks looking for more versatility in a gyuto. The convex geometry of the blade separates even the densest of ingredients with ease and is yet another reason why this knife is a dream to use. Fit and finish is excellent and the handles are absolutely bomb proof, able to withstand the rigors of a professional kitchen with aplomb.

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.
