We have created the Kohetsu line of Tsuchime knives for cooks of all stripes. Made from the very easy to maintain VG-5 stainless steel, these knives are really good at taking and holding a sharp edge while remaining easy to maintain. VG-5 is a highly-refined stainless steel with unique properties. It is not mass produced like some stainless steels and fits a specific niche, where pure steels with exacting alloys are necessary. It is similar to VG-10 aside from a slightly larger grain structure due to there being more vanadium than in VG-10. VG-10 also contains cobalt, which is absent from VG-5.

Our overriding aim was to offer a blade of typical Japanese look and feel with a Western-style handle for those preferring this type of grip, and to do so at an affordable price. In the case of these blades we believe we have met that goal. Combined with a really unique hammered tsuchime finish, which resembles a mottled rather than actual hammered appearance, these fine kitchen knives bring a bit of bling and a lot of performance to your knife arsenal. They feature a well-made and balanced black pakka wood handle with a stainless bolster. Great performance and great looks, all at a great price!

    This is a well crafted chef's knife and is perfect for my introduction to high qualify knives. Would recommend especially if you're not ready to spend in the $200 just yet.

      Great knife, but minor niggles with grind and finish, February 15, 2018
    Posted By: Mark Kirkwood - verified customer

    First the good. The knife is great! I was a bit wary of VG10 knives due to chipping, so figured I'd try VG5. The result is I like it! The OOB edge is amazing (7/10 easy) and is also very easy to sharpen. The design of the knife is exactly what I wanted: a bit of heft, neutral balance and a good sized handle. Also very pretty.The not so great is - finish could be better: a bit rough on the choil, 2 (minor) scratches on the cladding and the heel of the knife ground upwards in a small dog leg. Fortunately that last issue could be easily fixed with a bit of surgery on a 1000 grit stone (and then a resharpen). But some more care needed in the quality control area, as it lets this otherwise fine product down a little.
