      Chefs knife, if you are getting serious, July 29, 2021
    Posted By: Martin

    They say you have to have a good chefs knife. I got this one and I am very pleased. It feels light and not strenuous to use as I use it alot as i am just starting to get serious about cooking. This is a real work horse and puts no strain for me at all.

    This product fits like a glove and is like riding a finally tuned racing bicycle. It's just fun. I wish I had taken advantage but didn't know about the extra sharpening available.

    VG 10 is always one of my favorites due to ease of fast sharpening in case you have a large amount of cutting to do and have to touch up inbetween. Beautiful handle. A real favorite and buy.

    OOTB the blade could use a tad of sharpening. However, I'm pleased with it ability. It is larger than I anticipated, but I am working on getting better with this blade. Haven't used in a work setting, but at home it works great..

    This is an outstanding value "beater", except it is much more refined than that. First off geometry on the knife is excellent, weight is solid without being heavy, handle was fitted perfectly and finished to a high standard. The vg10 used for the knife is good quality and took to the stones well, resulting in an excellent everyday line/general use knife. Absolutely awesome value.

    Great knife for the price! Stays sharp. Comfortable handle. It's my everyday knife now. I've spent way more on similar blades and I couldn't be happier.

      What a deal!, March 8, 2018
    Posted By: Frank T - verified customer

    I bought this knife for one of my Chefs and now I want to keep it! Holy Cow-for the price this gyuto is amazing!! The finish is really well done-polished and feels good! This is not a lightweight-it is not heavy but feels VERY substantial in the hand as a workhorse knife-not a laser feel at all. Feels GREAT and for the price-you are getting probably one of the best deals from CKTG. I love it but have to give it to one of my Chefs-Bummer as a gift-Bummer! I'm buying one for me ME as soon as i finish this review, Thanks for offering this one-it's a real bargain and also a really great knife.

      A beautiful tool, February 16, 2018
    Posted By: CD - verified customer

    Very sharp, very light. This knife is certainly worth the price. I wasn't sure I'd like a Wa handle for everyday use, but I quickly got used to it and now love it.The knife and walnut handle are beautiful and this tool is amazing in the kitchen.If you're looking at it, go for it, you won't be disappointed.

      Much better than the price suggests, February 7, 2018
    Posted By: Michael - verified customer

    It's lighter than other 240mm gyutos I own (I have a lot) but it arrived in 2 days (thank you CKTG!) and was fantastic right out of the box. I've been able to get an even better edge on it with my stones, and it holds that edge very well- 3 weeks of professional use and I've only needed to hone it with a ceramic steel. Trimming PSMOs for tenderloin, dicing gallons of carrots, onions, celery for stock, cutting flatbreads- it's completely reliable. Originally planned to be my beater due to the inexpensive price, this instead is my Go to knife.

      Pretty good, January 14, 2018

    This knife retains it's edge pretty well over the course of pre-service, The metal is soft enough that sharpening it on a wet stone is quick and effective.The price that I paid when it was on sale (99.00) makes this knife a good deal.The only thing that threw me off was the handle and how large it is compared to a typical stainless steel knife. But this quickly faded as I got used to and come to love how the handle feels. I now prefer using wooden handles over other types since it is easier on my grip.

    I received this knife as a gift and was thrilled when it first arrived. After living with it for a few weeks it does leave me going back to my old Miyabi. It holds a nicer edge than my Wsthof but isn't as responsive as it nor my miyabi. Feels clunky at times and lacking a super responsive feel. Overall a good knife for the money but not great

      Excellent knife for the price, December 16, 2016
    Posted By: David Roldan - verified customer

    I bought this knife because of the special price. But once I got it i realized it is probably one of the best additions to my collection of other Japanese knives. This has now become my to go knife and otb edge was impecable. The weight and handle are precise and the overall look of the knife is incredible. I have gotten many compliments and I am extremely happy with this knife. Thank you Mark for such a great deal!

      Great knife for beginner-intermediate cooks, December 15, 2016
    Posted By: Jacob - verified customer

    I got this knife as a gift for my dad. He's never really had a quality knife before, so I thought it would be a good gift. He absolute loves it and wants to show it the respect it deserves.Out of the box, it's not the sharpest thing ever, but it's definitely better than most anything you'd buy at the store. After a little love on my whetstone it was just fine. The length is somewhat intimidating if you're more used to shorter knives. Measure out 240mm to get an idea of how long this blade is before you buy -- just so you know what you're getting.For the price, this is a great knife and you can't go wrong. I'm excited to see what years of use will do to it.

    This was a gift for a friend so I only lightly handled/used it. I'm impressed at what I bought for the money, nice balance, surprisingly well made handle, excellent rock cutting profile. If I didn't already have a knife that isn't babied I'd get one for myself.
