Moritaka AS Small Santoku 130mm. 200 years before Columbus landed in The Americas, Moritaka Hamono was producing hand forged blades. Centuries of knowledge and tradition have culminated in the production of Moritakaís Supreme series of knives. Aogami Super (AS) steel treated to achieve a Rockwell Hardness rating of 64-65 is found at the core of this 130mm mini santoku. The AS steel in Moritakaís knives is excellent. Very hard, capable of extreme levels of refinement and acuteness and less prone to corrosion than many other carbon steels, the edge of this knife is a dream to sharpen and cut with. Clad in softer iron with a kurouchi finish, the rustic aesthetics are both pleasing and evocative of the deep tradition of Moritaka Hamono.

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.
