Chef Knives to Go is a small Madison, WI, company that specializes in high-quality Japanese kitchen knives. They have helped me out professionally (as an editor testing samples) and personally (I own and have made gifts of several different models). The owners, Mark Richmond and Susan Brown, really know their products and have always given me honest, dependable, and prompt service. If you are a professional chef needing a special knife or just a kitchen hobbyist wanting to upgrade, I’m happy to recommend CKTG. Good folks and great products.
