We're going to use this page to do a number of customs for this knife. Please enter your email if you see it's out of stock and we'll notify you when the next one is available. Matsubara Blue 2 Nashiji Gyuto 210mm Custom. This is a really sweet knife. Tanaka San lives and works with his entire family in his blacksmith shop outside Nagasaki and he is a very talented and hard working smith. The hammer marks you see on these blades are real not stamped with a press. We combined his blade with a sweet custom handle that our friend Isaiah Schroeder made using stabilized hard woods. It's a perfect combination one of the nicer knives we've done this year at this price point.

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!
