The 210mm gyuto is the hallmark knife for most home gourmets. This is the direct Japanese equivalent to the European 8” chef knife. Tsutomu Kajiwara’s rendition is a great example of the most versatile traditional Japanese knife. Forged of Aogami #2 or blue paper #2 steel and finished in the kurouchi style, created during heat treating, this black carbon coating protects the blade from rust and has a great rustic appeal. The length is appropriate for small prep areas, compact cutting boards, or smaller cooks who feel intimidated by its larger siblings and cousins. Coming in at right around seven and a half ounces, this gyuto has a bit of heft to it, which makes it an ideal working knife, that doesn’t require the delicate treatment of a thoroughbred. This blade is 100% carbon steel, and as such it should be properly hand washed and dried before storage.
Great knife, super sharp. Obviously keep it dry, oiled. Beautiful craftsmanship. My only issue with it would be its center of gravity is too far up the blade--in-other-words it’s top heavy. Other than that, what a deal!

Great value knife
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.
