Butch Harner makes some very cool knives. The look. The fit and finish. The performance. They are all of the highest quality. They are also very rare and are always in short supply.
The nakiri we are offering here is constructed from a single piece of XHP steel. XHP is made by the Carpenter Company. It is a powder metallurgy, air-hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion-resistant alloy. It is often thought of as a corrosion resistant D2 tool steel or a high hardness 440C type stainless steel. It is very easy to work at low temperatures and is more forgiving than other similar alloys during heat treatment. Harner employs a stock removal method in the making of the blade. It is a very tough and resilient steel, which makes it a perfect choice for kitchen knives. Its high carbide distribution gives the blade a very fine and sharp cutting edge. It also allows the blacksmith to put a very thin grind on the blade and behind the edge.
This filet knife has a nice sweep to the blade and is 250mm long in a straight line from the tip to the front of the finger guard.
This lovely blade is mated to a beautiful handle made with cocobolo.

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.
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!
