The Kohetsu AS Western Petty 150mm is a classically sized and styled petty, with a blade length of about 146mm and a height at the heel of almost 29mm. It features a really nicely polished choil and a flat cutting edge that sweeps to the fine tip almost 3/4 of the way along the blade.

The main ingredient of the knife is Aogami Super Blue, commonly referred to as AS on the CKTG forums. Aogami Super is known for the super acute and ultra-keen edges that it is able to produce. Not only can it take a fantastic edge, but it will hold it for a very long time. AS arguably has the best edge retention of all the blue and white carbon steels that we carry. The heat treat on this knife ranges from 63-64 HRC. This is a superlative carbon steel that makes a great foundation for this attractive and well-priced petty.

The knife is machine finished with some nice stamped kanji elements. Because it is laminated with a stainless steel the blade is protected up to the exposed AS core. So a simple wipe down and dry will be all that is needed to keep it looking good. The out of the box edge is very well done as are the well finished bolster and handle.

    Ground Too thick at the edge, improperly sharpened to compensate, blade ended up with a over sharpened rounded point, with a hated by me ASYMMETRICAL EDGE, I really like the steel used to make the blade though so Iíll make the best of it, by fixing the sharpening issues myself and at the end of the day after I do the work itíll be a good small petty knife.

    Superb knife! I use it daily for anything from choping garlic, to filleting fish. Holds an edge quite good. The finishing of the handle is really ellegant.

    I've used this bad boy everyday for about 4 months now. Sharpened twice. It holds its edge extremely well. It formed a patina super quick. I haven't had any rust issues at all, through hours of work. I typically use it for dexterous small prep work and slicing proteins on the line. Beats the heck out of the Tojiro 150 mm petty I used to have. Small gap between the handle and ferrule, but I care only about the performance. Thanks CKTG

    Picked this up for two reasons: teres majors and beef tenderloin trimming. This is my second Kohetsu, both with great grinds. I thoroughly enjoy the asymmetric convex grind for trimming silver skin. This knife rarely hits the board, and stays sharp. In a professional setting, I've trimmed over 100# beef since my last sharpening and it keeps wanting more. The handle feels as good as it looks. Top notch quality all around.
