Sukenari ZDP189 Damascus Gyuto 270mm Custom.
This 270mm gyuto from Sukenari can outwork most any knife on the market. The Sukenari features ZDP-189, an advanced powdered metallurgy steel that Sukenari heat treats to ~66 HRC allowing the knife to take extremely acute bevel angles and hold those edges extremely well.
The ZDP-189 core is wrapped in a beautiful mirror polished Damascus cladding. As both ZDP-189 and the cladding steel are stainless, this knife is very easy to maintain. The knife has a versatile profile with a sizable sweet spot for chopping, a gentle belly for rock cutting, and a thin pointed tip for detail work.

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.
