New charcoal grey handle as of 3/9/2021! We are very pleased to be able to offer these fine knives made by one of Japanís leading blacksmiths. They have been created exclusively for CKTG.

The Kohetsu HAP40 Wa Gyuto 240mm is the larger of the gyuto styles. It weighs in at 5.8 ounces. It has a nice thin tip with a little distal taper towards the point. It has a nice nimble feeling to it and comes with a super sharp edge right out of the box.

HAP40 is fine-grained enough to sharpen very well and rates 65-66 on the Rockwell Hardness Test (HRC) even harder than the traditional carbon steels used for knives. Contrary to other HSS steels, it can be relatively easily sharpened on normal waterstones, if not quite as easily as traditional steels. Knives from this steel keep their sharpness 3 to 5 times longer than traditional knives. HAP40 is extremely tough, and so not as likely to chip along the edge as the steel used in traditional knives. We recently upgraded the knife handle with this beautiful grey and black pakka wood octagonal handle you see pictured.

Please note, the knife sharpener intentionally thins the edges of these knives to make them perform better, especially on the tip area. Often times you will see a hazy/cloudy scratch pattern as a result. This is not a defect.
