Konosuke MM Blue #2 Gyuto 240mm. Konosuke is one of our most popular brands. Certainly, one that elicits the most praise and lust among our customers, be they professional chefs, home cooks or knife collectors! The MM series is the latest addition to their cannon. It is a line that we believe will be among the most popular too.
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. Easy to sharpen and with a relatively long lasting edge, the fine-grained steel can take a beating and keep on ticking, even in the toughest of settings. The inner core is laminated san-mai style with a soft iron cladding which is decorated with a brushed “hairline” finish. Some fine kanji elements are hand engraved on the blade face to set off the refined look of this beautifully made blade.
The knife is quite thin and the profile is fairly flat with a slight belly just at about the 2/3 point along the edge. As with all Konosuke products, fit and finish are of the highest order. The choil and spine are polished to extremely fine levels and look and feel superb. 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 it’s 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. It’s 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!
Top quality service. None better.
