    I'm a little lost with this CKTG thing. ******** is always hidden with stars as well. (Owner correct?) Is it possible to elaborate or will this just lead to a debate?
    It's not the Answer it's the Experience

    There's a debate (which is probably a nice way to put it) that comes down to differences in marketing strategies, business tactics, and personal ethics. Probably a dog best left sleeping.

    I asked already. He wont have anything any soon.
    But if I want to order stuff, I go custom.

    Mostly business ethics. I never bought anything there.
    Around a year ago there was one thread about the famous shop. I said there that I will never buy anything from that kinda person/business owner.

    Luckily Im not the most.


    So nothing more than that really. Its very personal, Im not going to buy there. But I need a slicer.

    any thoughts about that?

    Does it have to be Japanese?

    If you are interested in the Kono white #2, just get the Sakai Yusuke #2 from bluewayjapan on ebay. Best value in lasers

    Another option that Salty recommended awhile back is a Masamoto KS suji from japanesechefsknife. Fit and finish are probably best described as "functional" but performance seems to be regarded highly.

    I was lucky then I guess to find a Sujihiki from Shigefusa at Maksim's store

    I'm not gonna add too much fuel to the flame here, but what is being described in this thread when it comes to purchases made from CKTG does not resemble mine.
    I've bought quite a lot from them, and found both the products and the service to be nothing but to my fullest satisfaction.

    A Marko Tsourkan, if you can wait a little bit. Can't imagine a better slicer than mine in 52100.

    If you need one today, you could do far worse than the Hattori FH or Masamoto KS. Nothing wrong with the Yoshihiro mentioned below, either.
