We are proud to be able to announce a new line of knives made by one of our most popular and beloved suppliers, Konosuke Sakai. The Konosuke MM is a fitting addition to this renowned makerís catalog of kitchen knives.
The MM is a hammer forged knife using Blue #2 high carbon steel as the inner core with a layer of soft iron as the cladding. It is applied in the common san-mai style so that the Blue steel core at both the spine and edge is left exposed. The outer layer is given a very subtle and restrained hairline finish. Of course, the combination of high carbon steel and soft iron will require a careful maintenance regime to prevent corrosion. The blade face is adorned with some fine hand engraved kanji by master engraver Mr. Kawamura.
The 210mm gyuto is the mid-sized knife in this gyuto lineup. It is a perfect tool for almost every cutting, slicing and chopping task in the kitchen, be it large or small. The actual blade length, like many knives from Konosuke, runs short at about 201mm. This is matched to a relatively tall blade height of 47mm. Spine thickness is a thin 2.75mm at the heel.
The blade is coupled to a wonderfully executed traditional octagonal handle made from ebony. The MM gyuto 210mm is a class act all the way and one we know will prove to be very popular with our customers.

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.
