These knives have a factory defect: there is a small dent below the kanji that does not affect use or performance. The reason it's there is during the process of making bolster, the factory cuts the end, where contacts the mahogany scale, straight. While doing this, the blade itself has to be set not to move and the jig has a small projection or a dot to hold it firm & tight. Usually, they get polished out.

The Kohetsu Aogami Super Gyuto 270mm is the longest knife in this exclusive line of CKTG kitchen knives. It is a knife fit for tackling big cuts of protein and working through the sacks of vegetables that pro chefs are faced with on a daily basis. Of course a knife of this size requires a big cutting board and lots of counter space. But given those criteria, this blade will outperform any smaller chef style knives with ease and efficiency.

While it boasts a long cutting edge, the knife is not super tall at just 52.4mm. Because of this, the profile is fairly flat all the way to the slim tip. It is also quite thin but no laser for sure. Its lower height relative to other 270mm gyutos make it a nimble and easy to handle knife. It is also easy to keep sharp and maintain given its fully stainless steel cladding over the core of Aogami Super steel.

The blade is coupled to a really comfortable Western style mahogany handle with stainless bolster and rivets. Fit and finish are of an extremely high standard and the package looks and feels like the fine implement that it is.

We thoroughly recommend you take a good look at this great line of kitchen knives, which combines great materials, good fit and finish, and a truly professional feel. The Kohetsu AS Western gyuto is an easy choice for chefs looking for a big knife at a less than big price.

      Great knife, April 11, 2017
    Posted By: Ben P - verified customer

    Have been after a blue 2 or a an AS 270 for some time and not disappointed! I have a vg hattori petty and a traditional white 2 santoku and the fit and finish on this is really nice. For a large knife it feels balanced and not heavy. Out the box it wasn't sharp. I normally just go a few passes on a 4000 grit stone with my knives and that brought this up easily to a great edge. I chose this (with advice!) as it would be easier to sharpen than the hap40. If it ain't easy to sharpen it'll get dull then what is the point of having good knives? Tested at the weekend on a rib joint and it was majestic! Cutting through gristle bits just be resting the blade on top. Overall delighted, even with the relative high freight and customs for international ;)

    I purchased This knife to compliment my wa version 270mm of this blade....Marks designs and specs are once again remarkably shown in this western version....I loved the wa version but wanted something with a little more heft for harder ingredients and bullet proof handle....This knife came with a good edge but i ran it over a few stone and leather strop to get it light saber sharp ( get marks strop set for the light saber effect it was something i was missing on my edges for a while )...and this knife killed everything i put under it....balance is great just slightly behind my pinch but i have a large pinch and at the price the fit and finish is remarkable....anther great co op knife by mark and kohetsu
