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.

SLD steel by Hitachi is an excellent steel for kitchen knives. The main features of the steel is hard, tough and strong against wearing. Hitachi has improved it for better work and longer life, and named it SLD. The main chemical compositions of it is : C 1.4-1.6%, Cr 11.0-13.0%, Mo 0.8-1.2% & V 0.2-0.50%. Generally the steels which contain Cr 13.0% or more are called stainless steel. SLD has close to 13.% Cr and are fairly resistant for rust. Due to high carbon like 1.5%, the HRC after heat-treating reaches about HRC 61-62.

    I bought this knife for detail work on


    more Brunoise cuts.

    Out of the box i tried immediately on some

    onion and celery.

    glides through onion very easy and excellent

    sharpness from the SLD.


    Very nice lattice pattern on the blade.

    very thin grinds. handle needs some

    sanding near the wooden handle and plastic





    very good rocking motion.

    push cuts excellent.

    feels good in the hand.

    very light knife.

    highly recommend for the price.

    Excellent quality for the price point. I’ll probably send it in to replace the handle,however,the blade is exceptional,it’ll shaved arm hair OOTB. I’ve only had this piece for 2 weeks so I’m not sure how the edge will hold up. Overall I am extremely pleased with this Nakiri.
