Sujihikis are often regarded as a western variation on a classic Yanagiba blade. They feature a double sided grind and are optimized for slicing and carving a variety of boneless meat and fish products with precision and ease. Because of the relatively long blade to height ratio they achieve this act with very little drag or food stickage. The soft carbon mono steel construction has a very tight grain structure. This endows the knife with a wonderfully sharp steep edge which is easy to maintain and sharpen. Of course it will rust if it is not completely dried after use. The gray patina that develops will aid with this corrosion resistance over time. The 9.5 inch blade is attached to a nicely finished Pakka wood handle with 3 rivets. The edge has an 80/20 bevel. The balance is central and the knife feels light and fast. With its fine construction and sharp edge out of the box, the Kikuichi Elite Carbon Sujihiki 240mm is one of our most popular sujihikis. My guess is the RC on this is about 60. Spine is .09" thick at the base and the knife weighs 178g or 6.3oz.

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.
