This Kohetsu HAP40 Gyuto
180mm is an all-purpose knife that is ideal for home users that want something that's easy to handle and control and not too big. HAP40 steel is at the top of our knife steel list. This excellent alloy is manufactured by Hitachi Metals. It is a fine-grained alloy that can take a really sharp edge. It can also be sharpened with relative ease. The inner core is further strengthened and protected by a fully stainless outer cladding.
We are very fortunate it be able to offer these exclusively made knives to you. They represent a merging of traditional (methods) with modern (materials) and they would make a great addition to your kitchen knife roll or block.
