Yahiko knives are made in Sanjo City, Japan, to our specifications using a variety of steels. The 210mm gyuto featured here is stamped from a VG-10 stainless steel san-mai sandwich, which has been heat treated to 60 Rockwell. We have designed this knife for all-around versatility in cutting and chopping. The shorter length allows for use on small boards and in restricted spaces. It is also a very comfortable knife to handle and makes a great choice for chefs new to Japanese knives or who are looking to refine their cutting skills. It is not a tall blade so those with smaller hands will find it a good proposition in terms of light weight and ease of use. The shorter dimensions also make it able to deal with both larger ingredients as well as small items and intricate cutting and slicing techniques.
We have asked our makers in Japan to construct a tough and easy to maintain knife that will not break the bank. The well-finished stainless bolster and black micarta handle add a degree of sophistication and comfort that belies the incredibly keen price of this fine kitchen implement.

The perfect knife for me at a great price! Size, fit and finish and edge holding are just what I need for almost every job.
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.
