So I'm knew here, I cook for a living and I've recently gotten really into wa-handles. Until very recently I've ordered almost exclusively from Korin but there expensive and I'm not into the western style knives I used to like. That being said I've ordered from jki, japanese wood worker, and cktg, I've had good experiences with all, jki has been by far the best, jon is awesome. This is a loaded question but what's up with the general disdain for cktg?

Bad blood between this forum's starter and the owner of cktg. As you read some old threads you will find out. (I would start out with youtube knuckleheads thread.)

From my own experience, buying from CKTG is a mixed bag. On one hand, CKTG has a wide product selection and free shipping for relatively cheap orders. On the other, quality control is quite an issue (moritaka overgrinds, artifex problems, etc).

If you're really curious, give this thread a look - http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/1367-Moritaka-how-long. It'll shed some light on it.

I left my ten-foot-pole home today, so I can't touch this thread. :wink:
