This Kanehide 240mm gyuto is one of our favorite new knives of 2015. The reason is value with better bang for the buck than just about anything we currently sell on the site. The steel used on this knife is a special steel that is semi stainless and takes a really nice edge with good edge retention. It sharpens up great and doesn't rust like carbon steel knives. It's the same steel used in the Kikuichi TKC but we're able to sell this knife at roughly half the price. These knives will work well for right- or left-handed users. For care simply wash and towel dry after you're done using it.

    4  Great performance, decent finishing., March 22, 2017
    Posted By: Joe - verified customer

    I'm a newbie to the Japanese steel world, and the blade is truly impressive. Laser thin, and razor sharp, but coming from wusthof...the fit and finish was quite lackluster compared to what I'm used to. The handle rivets weren't smooth, and the handle scales weren't completely flush which irks me. Oh well, the knife is still a great performer, and if you can look past these shortcomings...a great value.

    5  great knife!, March 20, 2017

    I've owned a lot of German knives, a couple French, and one traditional usuba. This was my first foray into western-style Japanese-made knives, and I'm really impressed. I like the flatter blade profile of this and my French knives. This one is thinner, lighter, and more nimble. It came super sharp out of the box, cutting through onions like butter. It has a well-shaped bolster and rounded spine, and a nice polish. Overall I'm very pleased!

    5  Excellent, affordable workhorse., March 10, 2017
    Posted By: Jayson - verified customer

    I own a 210mm Kikuichi TKC. This is my favorite knife for cooking at home. It is a bit small for work. I chose this 240mm Kanehide because they are essentially the same knife. The fit and finish of the Kikuichi is nicer, but especially if you are looking for a work/school chef knife that is going to taste a beating anyway, this is a very affordable alternative. The metal is semi-stainless, and is prone to discolor if you leave it wet. So keep it clean and dry. This is a small price to pay for an easily sharpened blade with excellent edge retention.

    5  Looks like a Prius drives like a Tesla, June 27, 2016
    Posted By: Brendan - verified customer

    I chose the Kanehide TK, and I have never gotten so much pleasure out of using a knife day in and day out. OOTB sharpness was fine for me, I turned a sheet of paper into confetti and jumped up and down like an idiot. At first I was a little afraid to scuff her up, so I let the edge go for awhile. The moment I couldn't get a bite on a soft tomato I decided to give up on that, and brought her to the stones. WOW! That edge came back and then some. I still cant believe how quickly I can get this knife sharp. It takes little to no effort and it seems like shes a little better for wear each time. The weird bevel on one side is well hidden by my sloppy stone scuffs, and the only discoloration that seems to be sticking is up top at the bolster where my thumb and pointer rest. At this point (6 months of enjoyment) I take her to the stones 2-3 times per month, and occasionally do a little honing on a ceramic rod, despite the fact that I know I ought not.If you want a knife that looks like a Prius and drives like a Tesla, this is it.

    5  Great value, July 2, 2015
    Posted By: MJ Fleming - verified customer

    Note the knife only has two days on the job, but first impressions are very good. The shape of the handle and the profile of the blade remind me alot of Tojiro, and this knife is ground about as thin as my old Tojiro 240mm gyuto once the cladding was gone (polished off). Extremely sharp and holds an edge nominally better than my CarboNext. Steel is a little reactive and if you aren't diligent about wiping it down before putting it away the steel can be a little stinky but I have yet to see any pitting or patina form. Touched up very easily on a King 4000. Really good value for the money and at the moment I am preferring the Kanehide to my CarboNext. My only complaint is that the knife seems a little fragile because it is ground so thin and anything past 60HRC feels brittle to my hands. Probably just psychological. Thanks a bunch CKTG, this is a really great find!
