Kohetsu is our in-house brand of high performance, high value Japanese knives. The brand encompasses several different lines featuring a variety of steel types. The VG-5 line is a fairly recent addition and is made using this easy to maintain stainless steel.

VG-5 is a 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 its sibling. The blade is forged to a hardness of 60HRC, which is at the top end of this steel’s range. It is an alloy that takes a nice edge and holds it through prolonged use. The inner core of VG-5 is clad with a softer stainless steel layer which receives a very nice pebble hammered finish known as tsuchime.

The 80mm petty is a perfect knife for small tasks like hand paring and making intricate garnishes. It has a well-made black pakka wood handle which is attached to the blade with 3 stainless steel rivets. Both handle and bolster are nicely executed and add to the look and feel of this very well priced and useful kitchen knife.

    2  Dulls quickly, July 19, 2020
    Posted By: Brian

    This knife sharpens up well like most knives. Unfortunately, it's one of the fastest dulling knives I've ever owned. If I don't sharpen it every 1-2 weeks, it can get so dull that it's hard to cut through peppers or a tomato. Kind of defeats the purpose of good steel.

    You're sharpening it at too steep an angle. Make sure you're sharpening at 15 degrees on each side and it will hold an edge well.
