We are really pleased with the feedback we are receiving for our exclusive line of HAP40 knives made for us by Kohetsu. The line has developed over the past months to include both Western style and Japanese style handles. The Western knife range now boasts seven different blades types and sizes.

This lovely mid-sized petty is a perfect all-around utensil for chefs of all types. Itís small enough for the most intricate work, like garnishes and hand-held peeling jobs, yet large enough for more general cutting and slicing purposes.

The slim and light blade measures just slightly under the advertised 150mm with a nice height of 29mm. It has a really well shaped tip and slightly rounded belly forward of the main cutting edge. While it sits on the thin side of the fence it is certainly no laser. It has a well executed progressive grind and is finished with a symmetrical 50/50 bevel.

HAP steel is made by Hitachi Metals and this core semi stainless steel is then clad in a fully stainless alloy for added protection and strength. The exposed HAP40 edge will eventually take on a nice patina. A comfortable mahogany Western style handle is attached to the nicely formed stainless bolster and tang with three rivets.

  • Blade Length: 147 mm
  • Total Length: 255 mm

      Couldn't be happier, January 25, 2019

    My problem was that I had a 120mm petty in VG-10 and a 210 Gyuto in ZDP-189. I love the convenience of the smaller knife but was constantly disappointed with the performance of the VG-10 once it became dull. The ZDP-189 has lasted a year at full performance with no touch-up required but the size wasn't conducive to smaller tasks which I realised make up the bulk of my knife work at home. I needed something with a performance steel at a medium size to be my general purpose knife so I bought the HAP-40 150mm petty.

    It's amazing :) I've had it a few weeks now and can tell that it will last just like the ZDP-189. I have to work a little slower at the moment because of how ludicrously sharp it is. I'm worried that I'll lose a finger! Hopefully I can speed up once I get used to the new size.

    Fit and finish is flawless and it was beautifully sharp out of the box. The ordering, communication and shipping from CKTG was perfect as well. I did get charged UK customs duty by the shipping company but this was expected so I can't complain.

    Overall I am a very happy customer and am now planning another purchase from your wonderful site!

      New favorite knife for fruit prep, October 25, 2018

    This is my first HAP40 knife and the performance is excellent. Takes a very sharp edge, doesn't stain easily, and imparts no flavor to the food. Feels good in the hand; balanced at the bolster and not too thin a blade, which I happen to prefer. Worth it.

      Nice little petty, August 2, 2016

    Very good knife. Fit and finish was faultless. I touched it up using only a 4000 grit stone and it was shaving hair off my arm. Too soon to tell if hap 40 retains sharpness better than my blue steel knives, but I have not felt any decrease in sharpness after a week of use.
