Kohetsu is a line of knives we are having made in Sanjo City by a top, but undisclosed, blacksmith shop. We created these knives to fill a need for easy to use and maintain kitchen knives that look great but are easy on the wallet.

We specified SLD semi-stainless tool steel as the core element due to its great edge taking and edge holding properties. Hardened to 61-62 HRC, the SLD core steel balances acute bevel taking with a high level of toughness to withstand the daily rigors of the busiest kitchens. The SLD core is wrapped in a stainless steel cladding. The laminate is given a great looking lattice pattern that is quite unique.

This is a knife for smaller hands, smaller cutting boards, or smaller spaces. However, it is anything but small in terms of its abilities. This is a big performer capable of tackling pretty much any normal kitchen cutting task. Most vegetables or proteins can be easily handled with a blade this size. In fact, the shorter and lighter size of this gyuto give it a quality that feels fast and nimble. We have recently upgraded the knife with new walnut octagonal handle with black pakka wood ferrule further enhancing its already great value.

    This is my 4th Kohetsu SLD knife. I love everyone one I have purchased. The series of SLD knives are wonderful for a homecook like myself . But this SLD 180 gyros is my favorite for sure. In a small kitchen like mine the Kohetsu SLD 180 is perfect. The profile of the blade is spot on plus the feel of the knife is amazing. The handles Mark is putting on these Kohetsus are super nice. Definitely my go to knife day in and day out. My wife even likes using it. A wonderful knife for a GREAT PRICE!!!
