Kohetsu is an exclusive CKTG brand that has taken us over a year to develop. 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.
The Kohetsu Aogami Super petty 120mm is a lovely blade made with Aogami Super carbon steel and a stainless cladding. The inner core AS steel is heat treated to a hardness of 64 Rockwell. We send this steel to a highly regarded blacksmith shop in Japan for shaping and assembly. Aogami Super is a popular steel that holds its sharp edge well.
We made these knives with a no muss, no fuss attitude. They are a straightforward knife devoid of bling and pricey accoutrements; you are buying a tool that will do the job at a price that is very competitive and easy on the wallet. Comes with a traditional octagonal ho wood handle with a water buffalo horn ferrule.
Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect. He is doing you a favor by putting in extra work. Please look at the 4th photo on this page to see it.

Another excellent knife from Kohetsu. Sharp enough out of the box to slice tomatoes paper thin. Thanks, Mark & Sue for another excellent Kohetsu!
CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
