We have been adding a lot more items to our range of no-handle knives recently. The opportunity to customize some of these lovely blades is very enticing to many of our customers. By offering them without handles you are saving a bit of money and not wasting the discarded handle. Good for you and good for the planet!
We have the Kohetsu Shinano line made in a secret blacksmith shop in Niigata Prefecture by a very well-known blade master. They represent another step in the ever evolving Kohetsu line of Japanese kitchen knives which we are particularly proud of. These great looking and performing blades are constructed from Blue #2 high carbon steel which is hardened to 62 HRC and then laminated in a softer stainless steel cladding. This increases both strength and protection to the inner core while making maintenance easier than with full carbon blades. The specified hardness results in a durable blade that is still resilient and easy to sharpen.
The blade path is set high on the face and is given a great looking matte finish which adds a contrast to the exposed inner core edge. It has a symmetrical 50/50 grind which is particularly well executed. This is a perfect blade choice for a customization project.

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.
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!
