Matsubara Blue 2 Nashiji KS Gyuto 240mm Custom. Here we asked Tanaka San to do a popular French Chef style profile that some of our customers know as the KS profile. 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 made by our woodworker using 4,000 year old bog oak with a nice blackwood ferrule and maple spacer. It's a perfect combination one of the nicer knives we've done this year at this price point.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
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.
Very grateful such a dedicated and informative group of people provide excellent steel at competitive prices with superior customer service! A million thank yous!
