We created Kohetsu knives to bring you the best cutting performance using the top steels on the market, with impeccable heat treatment and nice, thin grinds—all at an affordable price.
We start with one of the top carbon steels available, Aogami Super
, which is clad with a soft stainless steel to protect the blade from corrosion and makes for easy maintenance. Our skilled blacksmith hardens the blade to 64 HRC which results in an edge that is both sharp and resilient.
is a vegetable chopping knife with an easy to sharpen blade which can be used by left- or right-handed users. The boxy shape originates from the traditional Japanese usuba knife. This blade shape has become increasingly popular with professional chefs and home cooks as it allows for very fast and efficient food processing. The long flat blade makes almost perfect contact with the cutting board, thus reducing the occurrence of accordion cuts.
The blade features a satin finish with a nice embossed kanji. Fit and finish on these knives is first rate and it carries over to the fine mahogany western handle.
This line has taken us years to develop and refine and we think the efforts have paid off.
