This is a CKTG Exclusive! It was love at first sight when Takamura delivered the Chromax santoku to us a couple years back and we've been begging them ever since to do a gyuto in a 210mm size. After many requests they finally relented and offered us these on the condition that we buy 500 per order. We swallowed hard and decided to do it.
Chromax steel is a semi stainless alloy often compared to R2. It has a very solid and tough feel, as opposed to a slightly more dainty feel of R2.
Chromax is composed of 5% chromium, 1% carbon, 0.9% manganese, 1.2% molybdenum and 0.5% vanadium. It is more resistant to corrosion than standard carbon steel. It is also harder (HRC:65) and exhibits better edge retention compared to standard stain-resistant steel. Chromax steel manifests the positive characteristics of both carbon and stain-resistant steel.
Blade Length: 212mm
Total Length: 335mm
Blade Height: 45.43mm
Spine Thickness: 1.81mm
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!
Top quality service. None better.
Always the best. Quick shipping, description matches what is delivered and the price, you can't beat them. I always come here to order anything I might need for the kitchen and I am never disappointed.
I ordered several Christmas presents from Chef Knives To Go. Everything arrived as promised and all who received gifts from there were happy with them.
