Designed with the busy line cook in mind, Kohetsu knives are made to be durable, easy to care for, and affordable. They are made of Hitachi Blue #2 steel clad with stainless steel, so only the mirror-finish edge will form a patina. The nashiji finish helps food slide right off the knife, simplifying a busy prep session. We also upgraded the handles on these recently to walnut octagonal with black pakka wood.

Kohetsu loosely translates to "be happy" in Japanese and we hope these knives will make you happy for years to come. Made in Japan exclusively for Chefknivestogo.

    4  Really a nice knife, February 3, 2017
    Posted By: Frank K Jones

    Was looking for a little more non-reactive nakiri and decided on this one. Nice OOTB edge, but as always I put it on a strop to clean the edge. This produced an extremely fine, sharp edge. Have used the knife only on veggies and am very surprised at the edge retention as I am sometimes a little less than delicate in cutting.
    Only compliant is a discolored spot, about the size of a pencil eraser on the stainless cladding. Nothing serious at the moment, but we will see what happens in the future.
    All in all, for the money, I consider this to be an exceptional value.

    This is my 3rd Japanese high carbon steel knife. Very sharp right out of box. Nice craftsmanship and finish. I've enjoyed using it.

    5  An Excellent Introduction to Nakiris or Carbon Steel for Beginners, January 9, 2017
    Posted By: Dario C.

    Trust me, the world of Japanese style knives can be daunting. With the plethora of knife types, steels, small smith manufacturers, sizes and plain or special finishes, one can definitely feel eager and anxious at the same time. But, let me make it easier on you. If for whatever reason you have an affinity to this knife, dont hesitate. Just buy it.
    Okay, well, why would you buy it (if you need a longer explanation)? First of all, if you are just a beginner looking into your first Japanese knife, and have decided that a Nakiri is suited well for your style of cooking, this Kohetsu Nakiri Nashiji finish is awesome. Plain and simple it beats the pants out of my $80 Calphalon Damascus 8 chef knife. I love that knife, but this Kohetsu is definitely sharper and better balanced. We are talking about a Blue #2 core steel here. Compared to the VG-1 steel, it just glides effortless through potatoes, onions and other vegetables. It's hard to describe without having a reference point if youve never held a scary sharp knife, but it's magnificent. Total control of where your knife goes, and slicing nice, even cuts makes cooking a joy. That's the key here. Cooking becomes fun and if you enjoy the tools you use in the process the better for it.
    Above all, the price makes this an absolute killer option for beginners. With such a good steel, wonderful finish and overall balance this Nakiri is an exceptional introduction to Japanese carbon steel knives.

    Like the 2 other Blue#2 knives I own, this knife is a joy to use. Very easy to maintain a ripping edge exceeding what it came with out of the box. Handle and blade balance as well as handle shape are spot on for me. No issues with the blade chipping unlike some of the white steel blades. Price point makes it a bargain.

    I had to go on a waiting list to get this knife. This is by far the best knife and made of the best metal for this price range. Sharpens to a whip. I work at wolfgang puck's 'the kitchen' in grand rapids, mi and this i my go to knife. highly recommended.

    in my opinion this knife is a little underrated. stupid sharp after a little stone work and thinned it just a bit....I shaved my arm easily..I love the profile and the slight curve so tip n heel wont chip in my heavy chop style. Seems very sturdy and I really like the look and feel my new fav. and again excellent customer service from Mark and Susan. Very happy and this being my second knife from chefknivestogo I will be shopping here exclusively from here on out
