Developed specifically for Chef Knives To Gos Kohetsu line of knives, this 170mm SLD santoku brings excellent craftsmanship together with first rate cutlery steel to deliver a knife with excellent performance and a very competitive price. The knife is clad construction with an SLD tool steel core and stainless steel cladding. While technically not considered a stainless steel, SLD is very stain resistant and together with the fully stainless cladding layer make upkeep on these knives is very easy.

The SLD core steel is well regarded for taking an excellent edge easily and holding that edge well. The core is hardened to 61-62 HRC which balances acute edge taking with a high level of toughness. The knife is well crafted with a unique lattice work aesthetic and a polished finish. **The walnut handle is octagonal shaped with a black pakka wood ferrule newly updated as of 1-12-2017.

      Good but potentially better options for you

    I bought two of these for gifts. I selected this steel over what i use (Aogami Super) for ease of friends don't/won't wipe their blades dry. I was disappointed in the edge out of the box...I'd give it a 3/10. I had to take it down to 600 and then back to 2000 to get a good edge on it. Once sharp, it cuts well. But even then, its still just a good knife. The cheap handle feels, well, cheap. If I compare it to a slightly more expensive Kurosaki AS blade, then there is no comparison of performance and feel. So, if you are truly constrained by ease of care and budget, then this knife works assuming you can sharpen as needed. If you have a bit more money and can wipe a blade dry, Id recommend a Kurosaki 170 AS blade over this one.

      Great Value and preformance
    Posted By: Chris Burton

    This is my 3rd knife from Chefknivestogo and if there is any hesitation about buying from this site you must be crazy. The speed and care they put into standing behind their products is refreshing in an amazon dominated online market. I received my package in 3 days with the free shipping. To my surprise the y had thrown in an extra 7 inch knife guard for free. Now to get to the actual knife in question. I'm a chef at a very busy restaurant and this knife preforms so well. It's the perfect size for a line knife and has perfect balance for me. I love the handle and finish. I have been keeping it sharp on my 6k stone every day and its just screaming through prep.

      Kohetsu Santoku

    Very satisfied with this knife! I purchased this knife for work and it works very well. It is a tad on the short side for my liking working on the grill side, but cannot complain with the overall performance it offers and for how easy it is to keep clean.

      Best knife I've ever owned

    When I bought this knife my wife was mad at me for spending so much money on a knife. Oddly enough after she used it now it's her knife.

      My new go-to (not gyuto) knife

    Extremely good value for money. Nicely balanced, light and nimble. Fit and finish is very good, especially for this price point. I did fill a small gap at the tang with epoxy but otherwise it needed nothing. CKTG finish sharpened it, giving it a wicked edge that drops through soft stuff like buttah. I've only had it for 3 weeks but so far I haven't needed to touch the edge so edge retention should be excellent. I wanted the bunka in this series but this was in stock and I'm perfectly happy. .
