Gyutos come in many shapes and sizes, not one or another being regarded as a standard. That is, unless youíre talking about the classic French profile. This western design has crossed the continents and is now a staple of many leading Japanese knife makers. The fascination with this slim and narrow profile remains strong and so we decided to ask some of our suppliers to make their rendition of this famous blade shape. Konosuke has given us their interpretation in the form of the Togatta GS+ 240mm. Togatta means pointed in Japanese and it aptly describes this singular blade design.
The knife features a semi stainless steel GS core that is heat treated to a HRC rating of 61-62. The grinds are made super smooth and the overall fit and finish is pure Konosuke. The core is clad with a softer stainless layer which protects and strengthens the blade. It also makes for much easier maintenance.
The Konosuke Togatta GS+ is a true laser, featuring a thin 2.2mm spine at the heel and a behind-the-edge grind that is in a league of its own. It has an edge profile that is more rocker than pusher but it will find favor with both styles of users.
This knife is supplied with a beautiful stabilized octagonal handle, custom made by one of our skilled woodworkers.

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.
