One of the most recent additions to our range of knives from Konosuke is the MM line. These knives are perfect examples of why Konosuke is one of our most popular and sought after brands.
Taking many attributes from the famed Fujiyama line, these beautiful knives are made with the love and attention to detail that has made Konosuke such a household name among knife enthusiasts worldwide.
The blades are constructed from Aogami 2, which is made by Hitachi Metals. Also known as Blue #2, this steel is a very popular alloy used in the making of fine cutlery. The inner core, or hagane, is laminated san-mai style, with a soft iron cladding decorated with a brushed hairline finish. While the cladding will aid in strengthening the core it is still a soft iron so care needs to be taken in the cleaning and storing of these knives. Some really fine kanji elements are hand engraved by Mr. Kawamura on the blade face to set off the refined look of this beautifully made knife.
This is the longest knife in the MM range and it is a perfect tool for pro chefs who like big knives for the increased productivity they afford. But donít let the size dissuade you if you are a home chef and like large knives. This 270 has the nimble feel of a smaller knifeóit is really well balanced and the wonderfully thin grind just adds to this tight and light feel.
A beautiful octagonal handle made from ebony completes the picture perfectly.

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.
