Here is our top choice for an excellent entry level Japanese knife! The Kanehide PS60 Gyuto 195mm is made with high quality razor steel with nice hardness of HRC 60-61 through special heat treating. These blades are cryogenic frozen with liquid nitrogen at minus 180 degrees C to enhance the hardness but also the wear resistance.

After 2 months of testing, we felt that this was quite simply the best Western-handled stainless steel knife in its price range. It's fully stainless, sharpens extremely well, and has a nice handle. It's superior to the Mac Pro, Masamoto VG, Tojiro DP, Misono UX10, Richmond Artifex, and the Fujiwara FKM which we also sell and are all in a similar price range. Try it. You won't regret it.

    5  Great knife, sharpens easily, holds its edge well, May 18, 2020

    I have several Japanese knives, but this is the first made of Aogami Super steel. The blade is clad with stainless steel, so only a few millimeters of the AS steel is exposed. With regular use, that portion has developed a lovely patina. The rosewood handle is attractive, as well. My other Japanese knives (a santoku made with White #1, and a petty knife made with Blue #2) have traditional wa handles, but I selected this Kohetsu brand knife with a western handle because my wife prefers the western style.
    Although the knife has a double bevel, it arrived with about a 70:30 bevel, so I reshaped it to a 50:50 bevel. I am left-handed and my wife is right-handed.
    According to the knife description at CKTG, the steel has a hardness of 64, and I believe it. One reason I wanted AS steel is that it can be given heat treatment to a high hardness. I have seen VG-10 knives get chips and nicks in the edge even when they are used by chefs who know how to use a knife properly. I wanted to see if the Aogami Super steel was more resistant to chipping. So far, so good - no damage after several months of regular use.
    I wish we could put pictures into our reviews so that you could see the patina. However, if you search for Nashville Knife Sharpening, you will find my website where I intend to post photos of this beautiful and functional knife.

    5  Awesome Knife, August 17, 2018

    I bought this probably over a year ago. So I've had ample time to use this knife. It is easy to put a killer edge on. I love the geometry of this knife. Love that I've added a western handle in. It's stainless so it's great for the wife. Also the grind is very nice, just breezes through produce or meat.

    Purchased this as a gift for a family member who wanted a nice knife that would introduce them to a higher quality knife than they were used to while not breaking the bank. This was highly recommended as knife that greatly outperforms its price point and it does. They are very happy with their new knife and couldn't believe that they'd been using such dull knives previously.
