Kohetsu HAP40 Knives Introducing a Chefknivestogo Exclusive! Kohetsu HAP40 knives are a new line that will appeal to the performance customer that wants unmatched edge retention. HAP40 is a semi stainless, Powdered High Speed Steel that takes and holds an edge better than any other steel available on our site. We think it holds the potential to become one of the best steels on the market for the production of high quality kitchen knives. Hitachi manufactures this steel and it contains abundant amounts of hard elements like W (Tungsten), Mo(molybdenum), V(Vanadium) & Co(Cobalt) As a result, it can be hardened to 65-66 HRC and will hold its edge an amazingly long time. These are going to be western handled knives with Mahogany scales and stainless steel bolsters.

  • 2.5mm Thick at the spine/heel

    This knife is just incredible I first ordered the nakiri version and the edge retention was just so phenomenal i just had to order the 240mm version,it lasted 3 weeks without having to hone it on my ceramic. In my opinion better than my $600 Takamura. This is the knife of the future guys. Even at rockwell 66 this knife doesn’t chip

    I’ve only had this one a week,but I’m already very impressed. I’ve banged it on the board a little and it is apparent that the edge on this knife just will not roll.

    It’s a fairly heavy knife,and quite stiff. I think I understand why Mark went with a western handle out of the gate - this is not a delicate knife. On the other hand it is very thin - thinner,I’m surprised to see,than my Moritaka 210 gyuto.

    I think this would be great for anyone who wanted an all-purpose knife that doesn’t have to be babied,and that takes and keeps a super-sharp edge without having to be sharpened too frequently. Which is exactly what I wanted,and got!
