Kohetsu knives are all about bringing you the best cutting performance using the top steels on the market with impeccable heat treatment and nice, thin grinds—all at an affordable price.
The Kohetsu Aogami Super Gyuto 210mm is one of our favorite medium length gyutos on the site. The blade is fashioned from Aogami Super steel, which is a top shelf carbon steel for kitchen knives. We specified that the steel be hardened to an HRC rating of 64.
The central AS core is clad with a soft stainless steel to increase both strength and protection of the hard core steel. The result is an easy to care for knife with really nice fit and finish and a great cutting edge—an edge that is both acute and has high wear resistance for long lasting sharpness. The grinds on these knives are quite exceptional and the edges are pretty sharp right out of the box.
The 210mm gyuto featured here is a medium length blade that will work in most kitchen environments. It is long enough to take on most ingredients, while being compact enough for easy use in smaller kitchens and spaces.
We have built this knife with a very attractive custom handle made by our woodworker using 4,000-year-old bog oak with a nice blackwood ferrule and maple spacer. It's a perfect match for one of the nicer knives we've made this year.

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 it’s 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. It’s 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.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
