If you are looking to enter the world of carbon steel Japanese knives, we highly recommend the Kohetsu Blue #2 line of knives as a great place to start.

This 240mm gyuto is a great cutter at a fantastic price. The larger than normal handle is balanced by the finely ground blade. Its an attractive knife full of character while being easy to maintain.

While carbon steels require some care in that they can discolor or even corrode, the addition of a stainless cladding reduces this to just the exposed edge. The extra care needed on this edge is offset by the much easier sharpening characteristics of the metal. Even a novice sharpener will feel comfortable bringing this edge up to its full potential.

The knife comes with a very good symmetrical grind making it great for left- and right-handed users.

You will be hard pressed to find a better value in a knife than this lovely 240mm Kohetsu gyuto.

    5  Outstanding value, April 17, 2018

    Out of the box sharpness was actually pretty good, but a quick stropping session took it to phenomenal levels. Edge retention is fantastic, and the handle feels good with a pinch grip - even with my small-ish hands. The thin blade makes this knife very versatile as well.

    I'm really happy with this knife overall and for the price would definitely recommend it:OOTB sharpness: 5/10 - Not bad, but certainly not greatSharpenability: 8/10 - Sharpens quickly and easily, very nice.Edge Retention: 10/10 - Honestly outstanding, a fresh well honed edge will easily last months in the home kitchen, which has been my experience over the past year.Cutting performance: 7/10 - Great performance overall, nicely thin behind the edge. Performs excellent on general prep tasks with minimal sticking; starchy potatoes can be a problem though! It probably isn't as nimble as other similar knives, but I'm not too fussed about that as it's likely a durability trade off. In addition I generally don't use it for hard vegetables - but this is common to most J-knives. F&F: 7/10 - Pretty good overall. The spine is nicely rounded and comfortable to use for extended home use. I actually don't have any problems with the handle, I think it looks great, is comfortable to hold when the knife isn't actively being used and sits well in a pinch grip when you are.Great first knife and I'm looking to try some more Kohetsu products!

    5  Great blade, January 19, 2017

    This knife was recommended to me as a no frills extremely functional knife. The blade is easy to sharpen to a razor edge and retains that edge very well. The carbon edge doesn't seem to be particularly reactive.I did a bit of sanding on the leading corners of the handle to make it more comfortable, but I was expecting that when I bought the knife and viewed it as a tradeoff for the great price. After that five minute modification the knife is extremely comfortable to use and flies through prep work.

    5  Love #2 Blue carbon and this knife., August 30, 2016
    Posted By: Tom M. - verified customer

    The modern lamination tricks and manufacturing allow some darn fine knives.Having the ease of #2 blue sharpening and wonderful edge quality combined with modest stainless layers makes for a worthy knife.I am quite pleased. Out of the box it was nice and sharp. Played with it slicing a lemon to allow the carbon core to develop a light patina. Washed it up -- made dinner using it... washed it and it is happy in the knife block.

    4  some handle sanding takes this knife from functional to fun, October 23, 2015
    Posted By: mike - verified customer

    This is a great knife at this price, and it was much easier than expected to make it an excellent knife, with a little sanding of the handle to make it round. Would be awesome if Kohetsu could modify the handle to a more round shape in production. Even with the squarish handle, it outperforms its price range. Moving from stainless over to carbon, and wish I had just gone with carbon from the outset. Loving it.

    The blade is nice. Over all good geometry. The edge was taken to a high polish unusual for a knife at this price. With use the blue steel core will patina and has a pleasing lamination line. It sharpens up easy and has good edge retention. Only reason gave it 4 stars is the handle is not as good as the blade. However the micarta material does hold up well in production kitchens. It can also be sanded. I recessed and smoothed the leading edges for a more comfortable pinch grip. There were a few lite horizontal scratches in one of the rivets. Took some wood off the sides & rounded the edges. Now all the pins have a nice polish and the handle little slimmer. It was an easy fix. I cannot think of any knives at this price that have a stainless clad quality core steel and thin behind the edge.

    4  Great bang for the buck, November 6, 2014
    Posted By: Amanda - verified customer

    I use this knife daily in a professional setting and can't recommend it enough for the price. Takes a great edge easily, keeps it for days, and feels great in the hand. Even the exec in our kitchen commented on what a good cutter it is. I don't find the exposed carbon to need any sort of special treatment or babying. The only reason I give it 4 instead of 5 is that the original edge was quite chippy but that was helped with the first sharpening. Other than that, I can't imagine anyone not liking this knife.

    Posted By: mike - verified customer

    This knife hits the sweet spot for price and performance. The handle seemed bulky for an almost laser until using it...i find the handle to be quite comfortable in use. Slight blemish between core steel and stainless near the tip, but doesn't effect performance. A must have at this price.
