Kohetsu is the name of our in-house brand of kitchen knives that we have created for cooks and chefs seeking high end performance, great looks, and top shelf fit and finish, all at a very attractive and affordable price. The VG-5 line epitomizes this goal perfectly, and in our opinion achieves it in spades!

VG-5 is a sub group of the V Gold line of stainless steels. It is a similar steel to the ubiquitous VG-10 with a slightly larger grain structure which is the result of a higher vanadium content. VG-10 also contains cobalt, which is absent from VG-5. It is a rugged steel, able to take a nice edge and hold it through a long session at the chopping board. It is a relatively easy steel to sharpen as compared to most other stainless alloys available.

This lovely gyuto is a long knife, measuring in at 270mm. This is about the biggest size in which these popular chef knives are available. As such, it needs a suitably sized cutting space to be utilized correctly. But when place and circumstance are in line, this beauty will cut, slice, and dice its way through pretty well any ingredients with a speed and efficiency only a blade of this size can manage.

A really well made black pakka wood Western-style handle and stainless steel bolster complete the package.
