Made exclusively for CKTG by a leading blacksmith in Japan, the Kohetsu AS line of blades are thin, light, and strong. We have specified an HRC rate of 64 to ensure a high level of edge retention and low maintenance requirement. This carbon steel core is reinforced by the use of a stainless steel cladding. Of course the exposed carbon steel will patina with use but this oxidation only serves to enhance the look and protection of the cutting edge.

A nicely shaped and finished ho wood handle with water buffalo horn ferrule give the knife a light and well balanced feel. This is a simple and elegant knife, a tool made to perform with ease and efficiency.

The Kohetsu Aogami Super Gyuto will find favor in any home or professional setting. A great blade at a great price.

Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect. He is doing you a favor by putting in extra work. Please look at the 4th photo on this page to see it.

    5  Didn't know a knife could be this good., April 25, 2016
    Posted By: Lawrence Heath

    Frankly this is the best knife, chef or otherwise, Ive ever used.

    Now I am not a pro chef but I have worked in a restaurant kitchen or two over the years, I also know how to put a fair to Midland edge on a piece of steel, given that, I was stunned by this knife. Sharp no longer applies to any other kitchen knife Ive ever used compared to this. If others say this knife needs some touchup out of the box, well more power to them if they think that, maybe they know something I dont. I dont know about others but I surely have a new appreciation of the term scary sharp. I never knew how well a truly excellent knife could handle and with such ease, cut not bludgeon you way through things, sub millimeter thin slices of garlic, not a problem even easy. This is one fun knife to use. Ive used this knife a pretty fair bit over the last two weeks or so even for a home chef; I absolutely cannot tell any difference from the day I first used it.

    So for those other home chefs out there that may balk at the price, dont, this knife is worth every penny and more. I can definitively see that I have wasted a boatload of cash on so called high end consumer knives over the years, and even more in time trying to keep the damn things sharp.

    Finely I cant imagine why anyone would be disappointed in this knife at this price point.

    Great knife i opted to have mark put a custom handle on it . But otherwise this knife is super sharp once you sharpen it and holds an edge for a long ( at least 4-5 day as a pro that's crazy)...and its strong enough for hard veg squash, root veg, even chocolate. would recommend this to anyone, just take care of it

    I like carbon steel blades and get that with the Super Blue core steel while still having a stainless cladding . I'll still coat the edge with Camellia Oil but the rest of the blade won't require as much maintenance . The fit and finish of this knife is excellent and it came out of the box RAZOR sharp (one of the few that have) , It's big but light and thin bladed enough with the right belly curve so you can rock chop, slice, dice, or about any job you want to do . It's blade heavy, with a handle is long and large enough to fit anyones hand too, yet it's not awkward . The blade slopes down to a thin edge for easy cutting , One thing on mine and, doubt it's going to be on all, is the right side of the blade has all the exposed core steel polished with a micro edge . But the left side has a micro edge and a light layer of cladding still over the core . I can see the core steel line under the cladding and if I wanted could polish the thin cladding off but won't . To me that might work as a plus toughening the edge slightly . It is still a thin edge and double beveled to it works well for me . The Super Blue HRc 64 is going to hold that super edge a long time too (I'm a big fan of the Japanese Blue #2 and Super Blue Steels) . I am very pleased and it is the best of the Carbon Steel and Stainless worlds .

    I love this knife. Manages to be big/sturdy and a laser at the same time. Been using it for a week at work and it has done everything from butchering fish to cutting finger sandwiches with ease. If you have $200, this is the knife you should get.

    The Kohestu Aogami Super 270mm Gyoto is one fine blade. Its does exactly what Mark Richmond said it would. Its a prep workhorse and boy does it make me life easy. Ths aogami super metal did tarnish just as I was told it would, however I like the oxidation. Its a absolute joy to use in a professional kitchen. Holds a super fine edge for weeks. Its so elegant in function and form. I'd would buy again and again.

    Excellent knife for the money, a bargain even. Super light and thin, and after a little work with sharpening stones, extremely sharp. Comfortable, and well finished with rounded spine and choil a really nive touch. the carbon edge takes a nice dark patina which looks awesome. 270mm is perfect for lots of prep work, I wouldn't go shorter I dont think. All in all an excellent purchase, Many thanks Mark for the reccomendation
