I know I'm quite late joining the party, and you've probably already made your decision, but I do want to get this info to this board. For a little background, I am an expert cook, though I have not trained professionally, and only cook at home and for friends. I love knives, and have a large collection. I had ordered a couple of knives from ChefKnivesToGo. The most recent purchase (just a few days ago) was a Kohetsu Aogami Super Nakiri 165mm. They had just introduced this knife, and I needed a new (better) nakiri. The order came quickly, but I HATE this knife. The balance is really awful, the blade being way too heavy for the handle. The performance is very poor also. When I am cutting veg, the knife doesn't cut all the way through at the back. The knife was $150 with the saya ($30 wooden knife keeper that would cost $2 to make). Long story short, I called the company today, and spoke with the owner (Susan), and expressed my disappointment with the knife. She wanted to charge me a 10% restocking fee if I returned it! Said she would now have to sell it "used". When I told her she should not even be carrying such a knife in her inventory, she laughed at me--a lot! I am returning the knife, and have agreed to a $5 restocking fee. I don't think it's a good idea to own a small business and treat the customer poorly, do you? Word does get out. Stay away from ChefKnivesToGo!
