The Tojiro 65 Layer Damascus Custom Nakiri is an unusual knife. Tojiro is normally associated with high quality, budget blades, so this is a bit of a departure and one we are very happy to be able to offer our customers.
The blade has a core of VG-10 Stainless Steel. VG-10, or CMV60, is one of the most popular stainless steels among Japanese knife makers. It has very good edge retention and is both wear and corrosion resistant. The inner core is clad in a stunning 65 layer damascus stainless steel. The blade is etched to reveal the fine pattern while adding a cloudy look to the metal.
This is a classic nakiri in terms of shape and other dimensions. The length of 160mm is perfectly proportioned to the height of 47mm. It has a characteristic flat edge with a nicely rounded tip. It is also a light knife weighing at 5.2 ounces. The nakiri will dispatch vegetables of all kinds with aplomb. It will clean up easily and take a fine edge when sharpened. This beautiful piece of blade art is coupled to a finely made custom octagonal handle.

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.
