The Kohetsu line of kitchen knives is a great addition to any chefís knife block or knife roll. These great performing and looking knives are clad with a unique hammered Tsuchime pattern, and use VG-5 steel on the cutting edge. This tough and easy to maintain steel is heat treated to 60 Rockwell. Light and easy to use, these knives will take a very nice edge and are easy to care for.

The santoku knife is a really great all-around kitchen blade. It has a deft feel and tall blade which endow the knife with a great deal of versatility in its cutting capabilities. Santoku translates to three virtues and the acts of slicing, chopping, and dicing are tackled with aplomb by this classic design. Many western chefs and home cooks look to the santoku as their go-to blade for most cutting tasks.

These are not only fun to use knives but they are easy to maintain too. The inner stainless core VG-5 is clad with a great looking outer layer of soft stainless steel that receives a really unique hammered tsuchime finish. This makes daily maintenance a breeze and adds to the great overall appeal of this well priced and well-built knife.
