Blue #2 steel is made by Hitachi Metals and it is one of the most popular alloys used in the construction of kitchen knives. Customarily it is associated with mid- to high-end products and prices. We are therefore really happy to be able to provide lovers of fine knives with a range of utensils made with this highly regarded steel, but at an affordable price.

Blue #2 is a highly reactive steel which normally requires careful attention to cleaning and drying. However, with the addition of a softer stainless steel outer layer, this chore has been minimized considerably. This outer layer is given a Nashiji, or pear skin, finish to further enhance the look and functionality of the knife. You will still need to take care of the polished edge and dry the knife after each use.

Unlike classic single-beveled honesukis, the Kohetsu Blue #2 Nashiji features a double bevel ground with a 50/50 profile. This makes the knife easier to use and sharpen.

The blade is augmented with a nice walnut octagonal handle and black pakka wood ferrule. This is a really useful small knife at a commendably small price.

      Kohetsu Blue #2 Nashiji Honesuki 150mm
    Posted By: Kristopher Lee

    My first honesukišŸ˜ I am so glad this knife exists. Fit and finish is okay, a bit rough on the spine but expected. The steel is absolutely gorgeous with the fadded look and cladding lines. I have had this knife for years now and purchased it when I was breaking down 20 birds a shift (you know the feeling) with a 150mm utility knife. It was one of my first carbon blades and I unfortunately underestimated the hardness of the core and had to reshape the blade after a couple chips. Just be extra careful around the tight spots, let the knife do the work. Stay Sharp!
    Cheers,
    Kris
