My first White Steel blade. Absolutely love it. My particular blade was 83 mm. The nashiji stainless cladding is something to behold. Such a gorgeous knife. I wish I had more of it, so I'll be picking up a gyuto in the Yuki line. It's that nice.
The fit and finish is excellent. The blade aesthetics are my personal favorite. Red/Light colored handle is extremely appealing to me. The small amount of work I've done with it has been a pleasure. Edge OOTB was excellent. I did not order the sharpening service. I just balsa & leather stropped it and it shaves hair. Have only had it and used it about two weeks, but I want another.
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!
