The Kohetsu 210mm Kiritsuka is made with top-of-the-line Hitachi blue #2 steel with excellent heat treatment and very nice grinds. The 210mm length is the perfect size for processing all but the largest ingredients.
Many of our customers are line cooks and we made this knife as a no frills line knife that should be a great and long lasting cutter. The knife is clad in stainless steel so only the mirror-finished carbon steel edge will be reactive. Less maintenance...more productivity!
Kohetsu loosely translates to "be happy" in Japanese and we hope this knife will make you happy for years to come. The knife is made in Japan to our exacting specifications.
This knife is a fantastic deal and a great introduction to Japanese carbon kitchen knives.
