Kohetsu is one of our in-house brands that are created for us by some of the best knife makers in Japan. The VG-10 Damascus knives are forged by blacksmith Tsukahara-San, who hardens the steel to 60 HRC. A cladding of stainless damascus adds strength, shock protection, and great looks. The beautiful organic pattern is obtained by using an etched engraving technique. The fine-looking kanji script is also etched for durability, resulting in a great looking blade that is easy to maintain and care for.
The gyuto featured here is very similar to its other stablemates but in this instance, it wears Eastern boots, as in a yo handle! The cutting-edge measures 210mm which is a nice size for this style of knife when space or small hands are a consideration. But even if these are not issues, its compact dimensions make it a very nimble, light, and easy to maneuver kitchen cutter.
