- verified customerI grew up in a household used to getting by with economy knives. When we finally got a Chicago Cutlery box set I thought that was a big improvement. Once I was out on my own i adopted a quality over quantity approach when it came to buying things for the kitchen especially knives. My first major purchase was a Henkles Pro-S Santuko and paring knife. For a time I thought those were good. Then I learned about Shun and saved until I could afford the Reserve Chef's knife, which was at that time the highest quality offered. It put my Henkles to shame. Then I learned about CKTG and after a lot of research and deliberation purchased the 240 mm Kurosaki R2 Wa-Gyuto. As the title states, this is what I've been missing. This knife is hands down the highest quality knife I've ever had the pleasure of holding, let alone using. The unique hammered finish is something you have to see in person to truly appreciate. The blade is so light and nimble compared to other knives I've used that it's hard to believe it's also longer than any chef's knife I've previously used. This knife puts my Shun Reserve to shame. Buy one and you'll see what Im talking about.
