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 an attractive price. The VG-5 line epitomizes this goal perfectly, and in our opinion, achieves it in spades!

VG-5 is a subgroup of the V Gold line of stainless steel. It is 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 tough 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 sujihiki is a long knife, measuring in at 270mm. 270mm is about the most popular size for a slicing knife. It's great for carving and thin slicing a variety of ingredients with a speed and efficiency.

The knife comes with a well made black pakka wood Western-style handle and stainless steel bolster complete the package.
