Kohetsu VG5 Stainless Steel Nakiri kitchen knife. These knives are really good at taking and holding a sharp edge while remaining easy to maintain. VG-5 is a highly refined stainless steel with unique properties. It is not mass-produced like some stainless steels and fits a specific niche, where pure steels with exacting alloys are necessary. It is similar to VG-10 aside from a slightly larger grain structure due to there being more vanadium than in VG-10.
Our overriding aim here was to give you an excellent knife at a reasonable price and we think we've hit the mark with this beauty of a knife. The grinds are slightly asymmetrical and it can be easily sharpened evenly on each side. Out of the box, the cutting action is outstanding. Great performance and great looks, all at a great price!
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
