This new line of Masutani knifes we are carrying are made from the very popular stainless steel VG10. This is undoubtedly the most used stainless steel in the making of kitchen knives. It is so popular that members of the Japanese knife industry are asking for restrictions in selling the steel off shore to maintain stock levels at home. Most of the major production knife manufacturers feature at least one line of blades made with VG10.
Masutani is a small blacksmith shop located in Echizen in the Fukui Prefecture. They are a new addition to our CKTG store, but they are already gaining some very favorable reviews for providing really good quality products at some incredibly low prices. This particular gyuto is a perfect choice for home cooks or pro chefs looking for an easy to use and maintain knife. One that will not require large work surfaces or spaces. And one that will be nimble and easy to control.
The basic profile is pretty standard gyuto. A small flat area at the back, transforming to a nice gently curved belly. As such it will be a good choice for cutting styles of all kinds. The blade is made with a softer stainless steel outer cladding to enhance protection, aid with food release, and increase the aesthetic appeal. A black pakka wood single-piece western-style handle is mated to the stainless bolster and attached with two stainless pins.
This knife is easily one of the best values on our site!

I received this knife as a gift for Christmas and just like my santoku from Masuntani, I am thoroughly impressed! Sharp out of the box and cuts everything like soft butter! I can't wait for CKTG to get more knives from Masuntani available to buy because I definitly will be buying more as they become available!!!
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!
Top quality service. None better.
Always the best. Quick shipping, description matches what is delivered and the price, you can't beat them. I always come here to order anything I might need for the kitchen and I am never disappointed.
I ordered several Christmas presents from Chef Knives To Go. Everything arrived as promised and all who received gifts from there were happy with them.
As always, the shopping experience at Chef Knives to Go was excellent. Fast, free shipping, great website description of the product, and the confidence instilled in me because I know that if there are any problems the good people at Chef Knives to Go will help me work it out.
