Posted By: NickI'm a Head Chef working for a small but busy catering company.
I've been on the lookout for all round blade to bridge the gap and replace my guyto and santoku
I have been using a well known Japanese brand of knives made of Molybdenum steel for a while as they are readily available and I have no real
complaints except that they don't last very long and while they do take a keen edge it as well, doesn't last long enough.
I received this Kohetsu Bunka knife just in time to be put through its paces, 500 people over 4 days.
I cut and chopped and prepped for 3 days prior, 20kg onions, 10kg carrots, 35kg chicken, 8kg mushrooms ect ect. and list goes on.
This knife performed perfectly. It was razor sharp on delivery and held that edge for 2 days gliding effortlessly through everything!!
Only after that could i not do a push cut through paper!
But still my sharpest knife by far. I am entirely satisfied with my purchase, it wont be my last.
If you are looking for a new affordable all round prep knife, No frills just a solid work horse that will hold an edge all day. I'dd say this is pretty perfect.
