Rarely has a new knife to our store been received with such anticipation as the Shibata Kashima R-2 Gyuto 210mm. We have long been fans of the profile and performance characteristics of the classic Sabatier chef knife. The shape has been mimicked by many makers resulting in some particular iterations receiving almost cult-like praise.

So we asked one of our favorite blacksmiths, Takayuki Shibata, to make his interpretation of this ubiquitous blade. The CKTG exclusive, Shibata Kashima R-2 Gyuto is the result of his quest. It is a hammer forged, san-mai blade made with R-2 stainless steel. The inner core is clad with a soft stainless steel for easy care and added strength. The R-2 cutting edge will sharpen to a razorís edge and due to its outstanding edge retention characteristics, will hold that edge for protracted periods on the cutting board. Shibata-san is an excellent knife sharpener so it will be a top performing knife right out of the box.

Kashima is the name of a famous Japanese naval ship that is beautiful, sleek, modern, and designed to slice through the oceans with grace. We think you'll have the same opinion of this wonderful knife.
