If you have been dreaming of that elusive knife that can handle the rigors of a commercial kitchen while keeping a razor sharp edge longer than any knife you have ever used, then itís time to wake up! You have just found your blade!

The Kohetsu HAP40 gyuto measures 210mm along the edge. With its medium height, this makes for a comfortable, light, and easy to wield knife capable of tackling almost every ingredient. The knife is on the thin side of the scale but certainly no laser. It has a nice progressive grind which Mr. Tsukahara grinds more on the right side than the left and he feathers and thins out the tip for nice cutting performance that will work well for left and right handed users. I shot a video of him sharpening these knives that you can view at the bottom of this page.

The Hitachi made HSS steel core is clad in full stainless steel for added protection and strength. The exposed semi stainless edge will eventually take on a nice patina. A mahogany Western style handle is attached with a stainless bolster and three rivets.

    This is what I go to when precision is needed. From cubing tomatoes to portioning fish, because of the shorter blade height, this knife can do it. After two weeks of use [every day use] I've only stropped to maintain it's effortless abilities.

    This is a great knife because it glides through hard veggies without effort. That is, of course, due mostly to the thinness of the blade. I haven't used it long enough to saying anything about how well the steel stays sharp or how easy it is to sharpen. Mine is still wickedly sharp. It's no secret that ultra hard particle steel knives will lose that insanely sharp edge somewhat quickly, but will hold a still very sharp edge for an equally insanely long time. This suits me just fine.

    My knife is very light and the fit and finish are excellent. The blade height of only around 45mm doesn't provide much room for knuckle clearance. It fits me just fine but it may bother some folks with very large hands.

    Excellent knife, fit and finish is very good. The knife came sharp out of the box and holds its edge for a long time, thanks to the Hap40 steel. Performance is also very good, the knife is thin behind the edge and the grinds are good. A+ on this Gyuto, highly recommend.

    Excellent knife! I needed something my wife would not have to maintain like my carbon steel knives. The blade height is not high enough to keep my man knuckles off the cutting board, but fits her quite nicely. The edge is quite impressive out of the box slicing through newspaper as fast as you can push it with no hesitation and it falls right through food. I have been using it as a home cook for about a week with no noticeable drop in performance and no sharpening. It dropped one star because of the grind, it is not quite convex enough to prevent food from sticking to it. Well worth the money, buy it!
