This Kohetsu santoku was created to make life easier for busy cooks. Made in Japan exclusively for Chefknivestogo, it was designed to be durable, affordable, and excellent at its job. It is made of Hitachi blue #2 steel clad in stainless steel, so only the edge of the blade will be reactive. Kohetsu loosely translates to "be happy" in Japanese, and we know this knife will live up to its name. It now comes with a walnut and pakkawood octagonal handle.

  • Weight: 4.4 ounces

      This knife rocks, September 25, 2020
    Posted By: Mark Hosny - verified customer

    Cuts like butter, light, great for getting super thin cuts, and stays sharp with just a few passes with a strop.
    Out of the box, this knife isn't extremely sharp, but using a 1K and 5K stone will get a razor sharp edge. It cuts like butter. Light, thin, and stays sharp! Although the size is smaller than a chef's knife, it cuts like a beast and performs well. I also want to mention that the customer service and shipping is outstanding. It's one of the big reasons I feel confident about investing in good knives and sharpeners because I know this company is going to recommend product that is high quality.

      Excellent value, June 5, 2020

    I'm very happy with this blade. I bought the knife to replace a santoku I made out of a Maruyoshi kigami blade blank. That one is hardened to 60 HRC, but requires special techniques with fine-grained stones to sharpen without chipping, and therefore takes a long time to sharpen. This one holds an edge longer and sharpens quite easily with the same techniques I would use to sharpen any garden-variety knife made of western steel. It also has an attractive finish on the blade and is already acquiring a colorful patina along the cutting edge, just from two weeks of routine vegetable chopping at home (and prompt rinsing and drying, of course).

    The handle is fine for those who like wa handles, though the grain of the walnut is a bit plain. I expect I'll end up making my own, more western-style handle for it.

      Happy in the hand, May 10, 2019

    I have several excellent chef/gyuto knives but my wife would usually turn to a petty knife for general use cooking. She says that chef knife is too large for her comfort. I purchased this knife hoping that it would hit the goldilocks zone. We've had this knife for a year. It is now her go to knife. An appropriate sized knife for smaller chefs. Easy to sharpen, holds an edge well. It has become the knife that I use to slash the tops of rustic bread dough before the bake. 10/10

      Well worth it. , August 9, 2018

    I have been using this knife for a month now in a professional kitchen and it has exceeded my expectations for what I thought a $100 knife would be. Were no aesthetic blemishes or defects that hindered use. Was surprisingly sharp out of the box, and since then it is very easy to put on an maintain a screaming sharp edge. Currently my favorite knife I own. Would definitely recommend it.

      kohetsu - Santuku 165mm, January 27, 2018
    Posted By: John Arnett - verified customer

    WOW a very nice all around blade with great balance. Touched up the sharpness a bit and then as Mark says when you use this knife you will be Happy... made me smile with the first use. I'll be ordering more sharpening items and guards and another chefs knife to fill out my set. Gave My good friend (a Chef) this knife his (BD) and he said it is one of the best he has used. Thanks

      Very Pleased, March 13, 2017

    I just received this knife today and I must say that I am very happy with the overall fit and finish of the knife. I got the knife sharpened by CK2G and it absolutely flies through the onions I have tried it on so far. The knife feels perfectly balanced for a pinch grip and the edges that your hand touches have been softened enough that the knife feels perfectly comfortable over extended prep sessions. The handle was attached very well and has absolutely no play, the ferrule and handle junction is also very smooth. Finally, I really like the nashiji finish as it adds a softness to the look of this wickedly sharp knife. If I find that this knife's performance deteriorates over then next few months, I will let you guys know.

      very solid knife, February 27, 2017
    Posted By: Eric - verified customer

    2nd knife in the Kohetsu Nashiji line I own.Another really good knife for the money. Edge out of the box not as good as prior Nikari, but very easy to hone a ripping edge and easy to maintain. The Cladding slightly patinas but doesn't stain, nor does it discolor product you are working with like onion or ginger.Generous blade height off sets thicknee at heel and top of the blade, doesn't wedge product. I will soon purchase the Gyotu in this line.

    I'm a big fan of Kohetsu's lower-priced knives, and own two examples from the SLD line, which I am very happy with. The Kohetsu Blue
