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 it's edge an amazingly long time. These are going to be western handled knives with Mahogany scales and stainless steel bolsters.
