The Sukenari ZDP-189 210mm gyuto is the complete package with premium steel, a versatile profile, and outstanding aesthetics and fit and finish making it an ideal choice for anyone who appreciates the best in kitchen cutlery.
The Sukenariís heart is its ZDP-189 powdered metallurgy steel. ZDP-189 is capable of holding an edge as well as any steel on the market today, so whether it is used in the pro-environment for long, high volume prep sessions or by home users who prefer to work over a cutting board more than a sharpening stone, this knife is an outstanding option. The ZDP-189 core is wrapped in a mirror polished, Damascus patterned cladding.
Both ZDP-189 and the Damascus cladding are stainless steels so maintenance is easy. The knife has a flexible profile with generous height at the handle, a flat at the heel for chopping, a gentle belly for rocking, and a thin pointed tip for detail work.
This knife has a beautiful custom handle in an octagonal shape made with buckeye burl and is fully stabilized and dyed. It's a perfect match to this amazing blade.

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!
