Tojir DP knives deliver some of the best value for performance in the market and represent what has become the preferred knife for home and professional cooks when transitioning from Western to fine Japanese cutlery. Tojiro DP knives present a core of stainless VG-10 enclosed in a cladding of softer stainless steel. In these knives, VG-10 is expertly treated to bring out the best qualities in the steel. These knives can take and hold an incredibly sharp edge which is very easy to maintain and can stand up to the demands of professional kitchens. The fit and finish is high and the Stamina Wood handles are very well done and can withstand some serious use.
Honesuki knives are specifically designed for breaking down poultry but can be used for a variety of boning tasks equally as well. The Tojiro DP Honesuki is a single bevel, asymmetrically ground knife with a concave grind on the left hand side of the knife. Most traditional Japanese patterned fillet and boning knives are much thicker and heavier than Western style equivalents, and this is also the case with the Tojiro DP. The added weight and thickness provide the necessary heft to move through cartilage and joints while also separating meet from bone. Given the amount of steel that is used in Honesuki knives for the length, they are usually far more expensive than a Western style knife. Despite this, Tojiro still offers this pattern at an incredibly affordable price and as such is an excellent option for those looking to explore traditional Japanese design.

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.
