This is the mid-point size of the Kohetsu wa gyuto range. It comes in at 245mm in length. It is a very light knife at just 4.9 ounces. The blade height is in the middle of the range of gyutos. The handle is quite light which adds to the nice nimble feeling of the knife. It feels and acts like a true laser. It really is a finely made knife in all regards.

There is a bit of an asymmetrical aspect to the grind but it should be good for both left- and right-handed users. The profile is moderately flat with a bit of belly towards the fine tip. They come out of the box with one of the sharpest edges we have seen. In keeping with other knives made from the “voodoo steel” HAP40, it will hold that edge for a long time. Sharpening is also not a huge chore as the steel takes a good edge without much trouble. These are high performance knives in all respects. Fit and finish are also of a high order.

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. Please look at the 4th photo on this page to see it.
