A new addition to the Tojiro line of VG10 hammered knives is this fun and functional 90mm petty. This baby is about as short as a petty gets. As such, it can double as an in-hand paring knife. It is a very small knife, but that smallness translates to big abilities in the kitchen. The short and stout blade can get into all sorts of tight spaces, like cutting around bones, while it is also able to tackle the finest and most intricate garnish preparations.
The blade is constructed from VG10 and a san mai sandwich of a soft stainless steel. VG10 is one of the most popular stainless steels used in the making of Japanese knives. It is highly regarded for it good edge retention, toughness, and superior stain resistance. It also gets really sharp. The soft stainless cladding is treated to a cool looking kurouchi hammered finish which adds character and a certain amount of extra food release.
This basic knife comes with a simple handle that is easy to hold and control for extra security when performing in-hand work. At the price, this little cutter can be used in many places where one would not necessarily take a more expensive 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.
