Kohetsu is a name that loosely translates to "bring happiness and pleasure " or just "be happy." We hope by making these knives they will do just that for you. Kohetsu knives are about bringing you the best cutting performance using the top steels on the market with impeccable heat treatment and nice, thin grinds at an affordable price. This line has taken us over a year to develop and we think the effort has been worth it. Once you try a Kohetsu we hope it brings you years of cutting pleasure.
The Aogami Super line you see here features stainless clad blades with AS core steel and heat treated by one of the best steel mills in Japan. Rockwell Hardness is 64 for these knives and each batch of steel is tested for consistency. The knives are finished by a blacksmith shop in Japan and they come with ho wood handles with buffalo horn ferrules.
