Kohetsu is our exclusive line of kitchen knives created to offer cooks of all kinds a blade made with great materials at a very reasonable price. Kohetsu HAP40 series knives are a new addition to the label that will appeal to the performance customer demanding unmatched edge retention.

HAP40 is a semi stainless, powdered high speed steel (HSS) that takes and holds an edge better than any other steel available on our site. HAP40 is fine-grained enough to sharpen very well and rates 64-68 on the Rockwell Hardness Test (HRC)óeven harder than the traditional carbon steels used for knives. We have specified a hardness of 65-66 HRC for our blades. Unlike other HSS steels, it can be relatively easily sharpened on normal waterstones, if not quite as easily as traditional carbon steels.

We think HAP40 holds the potential to become one of the best steels on the market for the production of high quality, high durability kitchen knives.

The finely ground blade of this lovely 120mm petty is welded to a stainless steel bolster, and a Western style mahogany handle is attached with 3 stainless rivets.

    This is a great petty. I chose this knife because of the steel and I am so glad I did. OOTB it is razor sharp. I believe this one will take lots of use and hold an edge longer than most. I got this one to be a user and it so far has exceed at every task I have used it on. Would I buy it again .. simple answer is you bet worth every penny.

    Beautiful design. Excellent workmanship. Magnificent blade. Extremely sharp. I don't expect the first sharpening to be easy. Or soon.
