When we created our line of Kohetsu knives our overriding aim was to offer a blade of typical Japanese look and feel, but with a Western-style handle for those preferring this type of grip, and to do so at an affordable price. In the case of the VG-5 line of kitchen knives we believe we have met that goal. This line of tsuchime (which translates roughly to hammered in Japanese) knives has been created for pro cooks and home chefs looking for robust, good looking performers that sharpen easily. They use VG-5 steel as the core that is heat treated to 60 Rockwell.
are becoming a popular choice in many Western kitchens of late. Their compact size and interesting profile have found a new legion of users in both professional and home environments. This is a vegetable cutter of the highest order. The flat edge and extra finger clearance make it a great choice for users who prefer push cutting over a rocking style. This nakiri
will amaze you with its ability to fall through the hardest ingredients.
This nakiri features a well-made and -balanced black pakka wood handle with a stainless bolster. Great performance and great looks, all at a great price!
