Kohetsu is our in-house brand of Japanese kitchen knives. The Kohetsu brand is comprised of eight separate lines of kitchen knives differentiated by different steels and manufacturing techniques. This Kohetsu VG-10 Damascus Petty is constructed of VG-10 steel which is probably the most popular stainless alloy in the blade making industry. VG-10 is also known as V Gold 10, and it boasts good corrosion and wear resistance as its main forte. It is a tough steel which, if correctly hardened, is also resilient enough for most users and uses. This popular steel is used by most of the well-known commercial knife manufacturers.
The inner core is covered with a softer stainless steel cladding that is not only beautiful, but easy to maintain as well. This combination produces a very carefree knife. The great looking blade is mated to a finely crafted stainless bolster. The western style handle is made from black Micarta and attached to the tang with three stainless pins.
The Kohetsu VG-10 Damascus Petty 150mm is a very versatile knife despite its diminutive size. It can chop, slice, and cut almost any small to medium ingredient, yet it is compact enough to be a perfect paring knife or tool for delicate and precise usage such as garnish preparation. This is a high value knife that delivers top class performance with looks and finish to match.
