Marko Tsourkan learned to make knives under the tutelage of famed blade maker Devin Thomas. He formed the company bearing his name in 2008. In that short time, Marko has gained a strong following amongst chefs and knife aficionados worldwide. His elegant shapes, superb craftsmanship, and of course stellar grinds are the hallmarks of his easily recognizable knives.
Marko likes to use a variety of steels in the making of his knives, from the simple to the exotic. He has an ability to extract the best from the steel and emphasize its strengths. So is the case with this great looking nakiri, made from that evergreen alloy, AEB-L.
AEB-L is a wonderful steel for making knives. It is no surprise that Marko uses this so much as it is also a favorite of Devin Thomas. It was originally developed for the manufacturing of razor blades, so it will take a super fine edge while being very corrosion resistant and hard wearing.
This very lovely nakiri adheres to the classic shape of that ubiquitous vegetable slayer. But it is taken up a notch by the extra special grinds that Marko bestows on his blades. Add in the classic, yet stunning elegance of the handle and blade package. Pure Tsourkan!

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.
