This Kohetsu santoku was created to make life easier for busy cooks. Made in Japan exclusively for Chefknivestogo, it was designed to be durable, affordable, and excellent at its job. It is made of Hitachi blue #2 steel clad in stainless steel, so only the edge of the blade will be reactive. Kohetsu loosely translates to "be happy" in Japanese, and we know this knife will live up to its name. It now comes with a walnut and pakkawood octagonal handle.

    I'm a big fan of Kohetsu's lower-priced knives, and own two examples from the SLD line, which I am very happy with. The Kohetsu Blue #2 Nashiji line looks like a winner to me as well .

    I really like the handles Mark had put on these knives. My example is well finished, a pleasure to hold in use, and beautiful to look at. No plastic ferrule, no need to re-handle!

    The OOTB edge on mine was OK. I sharpened with Shapton Pro Stones, 2K and 5K, then stropped with balsa and 1 Micron CBN, then horse butt. WOW! Smokin' sharp now. A real pleasure to sharpen
    for an amateur like myself.

    The nashiji finish is beautiful and unique, with a lot of character.
    Attention to detail in the finish of the blade road was a bit lacking on my example, with a few leftover grind marks on each side of the blade, in the kasumi finish. Nothing that can't be remedied with a little work down the road. And hey, look what these are selling for!

    Overall, for me, a great value, and well worth the price of admission. I'll be back for more!

    Since the title makes no sense I will explain myself. If you have any doubts about this knife, Don't. blue #2 or aogami #2 core runs along the edge only covered in a san mai stainless steel cladding, the nashiji finish is among the best I've seen and fit and finish on this knife is a solid 10. Handle: oh my god it is a work of art, you could admire the handle even if there was no blas to look at, congratulations to Mark on this upgrade, the knife itself is a bang for the buck. very thick out of the handle but quickly tapers and behind the edge you'll have no complaints. height is just perfect, it might benefit from a longer sweet spot but this might vary among other handforged knifes. This knife is a beauty to work with, patina will form at the edge only keeping it nice and clean showing off that great nashiji finish. For this price and what this characteristics I would recommend this to any cook either beginner or experienced. Get it you will not get disappointed.

    Got this knife not long ago, but it feels like I've had it for years. It's like finding that perfect pair of pants or shoes on sale that you just knew you were gonna love, tired them on and the fit perfect. I'm a line cook and prep everything from veggies to herbs, from fish to chicken with this knife and it handles its self with grace. You will need to sharpen this out of the box, but when you do it feels like a $300 knife right after. Most people tend to like shiny knives and that's fine, but this knife has a beautiful rustic look to it which charmed me from the first time I laid eyes on it. In my humble opinion this is the best knife in this price range I have found, carbon steel, nice handle and gets crazy sharp very easy. Thanks to Chef Knives To Go and the video they put up, it was a great help with this purchase as well.
