The Konosuke Swedish Stainless Gyuto is one of the most balanced knives in their Laser line up. The blade is cut from a single piece of a super high quality steel and is then ground to a true laser style profile. It features a subtly convex grind which, like all other Konosuke lasers, is as good as it gets. The steel is a low impurity alloy that boasts a very fine grain structure. It behaves rather like a carbon blade but without the maintenance issues normally associated with these knives. The blades are hardened to 60-61 HRC.
The Swedish Stainless knives are renowned for their superb edge retention and overall durability. They are also regarded as some of the finest finished knives around. The Konosuke brand stands for excellence in all areas and none less than the high levels of fit and finish evident in every knife they make.
The 210mm gyuto is, hands down, the most popular knife among home cooks. It is the perfectly sized blade for use in the home kitchen where cutting board real estate is at a premium. It also has a lightness and nimble feel to it that allows for its use in all kinds of cutting, slicing, and chopping scenarios.
This knife is given extra value in that it features the highly regarded Khii ebony handle. This is another example of the Konosuke devotion to quality. It is perfectly sized and weighted to balance the blade in feel, heft, and aesthetics. This is a great knife made greater with the addition of this outstanding handle.

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.
