The Kohetsu Blue #2 line of knives features excellent heat treatments and very nice grinds. The special sized tall gyuto listed here is made from Blue #2 high carbon steel on the edge which was specifically developed for tools and knives. Blue #2 has a high wear resistance but since it's made from carbon steel it's easy to sharpen, even at high hardness rates, which in this case is HRC 62+-. The inner core is clad in stainless steel which will keep all but the polished edge from forming a patina while making daily maintenance a much more simple task.

The profile you see here is very tall for a gyuto and the knife has a nice workhorse feel to it, even though the edge geometry is thin. This is a big performer capable of tackling pretty much any normal kitchen cutting task. If you like the feel of a big knife with lots of knuckle clearance then this knife is for you.

    Looking for a tall knife with some thickness, some heft, some muscle to blast through some onions and slide through large tomatoes? This knife is good cutter, fun and practical (low maintenance)- carbon with stainless cladding.

    relative to Japanese knives this knife is on the heavier side (not extreme). Some Japanese knives feel light, unsubstantial or flimsy. Not this one- just holding it- you can feel the cutting power. It’s not clumsy at all, but the forwardness of the balance lends itself to “letting the knife do the work”.

    Comes sharp out of the box and ready to rock but could be touched up to get crazy sharp. Very easy to sharpen since the core is carbon. Should be able to take more abuse than many other laser/thin knives- still no bones or squash.

    This knife looks rustic after using it a bit- the core steel turns dark blue and the stainless cladding darkens up a hint. Decent octagonal walnut handle.

    Only a couple of small gripes- tip taper isn’t awesome (minor, workable), balance point is a bit forward and choil could be sanded (spine is).

    This could be your only Japanese knife or part of the rotation. It’s such a solid performance and value offering that its a “no brainer” buy.

    BONUS awesome knife to go all super-tuner on (thinning). I did some work on mine after a couple of months- thinned behind the edge and raised the grind. It’s a bit more sticky but it’s a different vibe- smoother, more precise with a much thinner (fragile) tip.

    This knife out of the box is about an 9 out of 10 sharpness. The fit and finish is very good. The whole idea of this knife is one of the better if not best bang for your buck knives. This is very much a mid weight to workhorse type knife that is very thin behind the edge. It comes in around 8 oz. And 55mm in height. So it is definitely a bruiser! Also this is stainless clad carbon steel so it is much easier of an upkeep. If nothing else this knife is worth the $170 to try if nothing else for just kicks and giggles but I am pretty confident you will like it more than that!
