Handles are done in a black Stamina Wood which is constructed with the demands of a professional kitchen in mind though is also wonderful in a home environment. Fit and finish is high and blade geometry is superb. Over all these examples of performance Japanese cutlery offer one of the best bang for your buck out in the market today.

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.
