Chef Knives To Go has developed the Kohetsu line of knives as a high quality, high value option for both epicurean home cooks and hardworking culinary professionals. This Kohetsu SLD 165mm nakiri features SLD semi-stainless tool steel hardened to 61-62 HRC at the edge. SLD is well regarded for excellent edge taking and edge retention. While not technically considered a stainless steel, SLD is extremely stain resistant and the cladding over the core steel is stainless so discoloration during normal use is practically nonexistent. The knife has a unique and attractive lattice work aesthetic and a polished finish. The d-shaped handle is made of walnut with a black pakka wood ferrule. Each one of these knives is uniquely handcrafted so some dimensional variation may occur.

      Really like this knife!, February 5, 2021
    Posted By: Sid - verified customer

    I really took my time deciding what Nakiri I wanted. I am so glad I bought the Kohetsu SLD Nakiri. There's just something about it that feels perfect. The weight, the size, the thickness of the blade, amazing sharpness - it's all just right. Very pleased! Would definitely recommend. Complements my other knives of varying brands and steels.

      Sharp choppa!, December 2, 2020
    Posted By: Davin Bartosch - verified customer

    Came to me very sharp out of the box. It has taken some getting used to. I think maybe I am more of a rocker than a choppa. This knife excels in vegetables (as expected). It is really fun to cut Korean type ribbon green onions. Green onions have always been trouble for rocking blades as a part of the round doesn't always get cut all the way through. This blade makes easy and quick work of negi. This is my 1st Japanese knife, and it has been cool getting to use it. Also, its semi stainless so I don't have to completely freak out about the cleanliness and wetness.

    I bought this as a wedding gift, so I can't speak to it's qualities in use, but the knife is beautiful. I put it on a 5000 grit stone before repackaging and it although it was quite sharp out of the box the tune up was worth it. It's reasonably priced, so giving it away doesn't hurt too much, but I think the thing that makes it most suitable to give as a gift is the choice of metals .The SLD semi-stainless core is hard enough, and knowing that you're not giving someone a knife that may require maintenance than they can/will do, is nice. This knife is a good introduction to quality Japanese knifes - you get the beauty and the edge without having to worry about fighting rust.

      Could be your last Nakiri, March 23, 2019
    Posted By: Bob Z

    Being a surface pattern knife lover, i debated this one for over a year and ended up talking to Mark about it. He said they were quality knives with new walnut handles so i ordered one.
    After 5 other Nakiris, I have to say I like this one the best so far. Walnut handle is nice!

    It needed some stropping first (so get CKTG sharpening service if you cant do this) and bam decent food release and it just glides thru produce, I would call it stainless with a good balance and nice appearance.There are loads of Nakiris to try but at this price point Im very happy with this purchase.

      It's all most 2 years, October 9, 2017
    Posted By: Donald Ware - verified customer

    It's been almost 2 years since I bought this knife. ( My first really Good knife ) I am so Happy with this knife. My favorite knife. After I used this one I went back and picked up a Petty, Santoku and Gyuto. I use all of them for different things. But most of the time this is what I pick up. It's balance, looks, rocking motion and after cutting. Its blade width works nice to pick up what you cut and dump it in the pot. This is my go to knife. Holds an edge !!!!! I give them 6 or 8 passes once a mouth on a 9000 grit stone. (whether they need it or not .... LOL ) these are Very nice knives. Changed how I cook. I bought this knife because of the SLD. Me and my Wife are using them. Didn't want to have a rust or discolor problem. I have to say My wife takes care of them like I do. Almost 2 years of USE and they LOOK Great and CUT Great !!! Could not be Happier !!!!!!!!!!

      Product Review, May 15, 2014
    Posted By: Jesse F. - verified customer

    Excellent quality for the price point. I'll probably send it in to replace the handle, however, the blade is exceptional, it'll shaved arm hair OOTB. I've only had this piece for 2 weeks so I'm not sure how the edge will hold up. Overall I am extremely pleased with this Nakiri.
