This Kohetsu bunka was created to make life easier for busy cooks. Made in Japan exclusively for Chefknivestogo, it was designed to be durable, affordable, and excellent at its job. It is made of Hitachi white #2 steel. Kohetsu loosely translates to "be happy" in Japanese, and we know this knife will live up to its name. It now comes with a walnut and pakkawood octagonal handle.
